The greatest common factor, or GCF, is the largest number that can go into a set of given numbers evenly. The least common multiple, or LCM, is the smallest number that a given set of numbers can go into evenly.

60

If the second number is a multiple of the first, then the first numberis the greatest common factor of both numbers.

A common multiple

A number that is a multiple oof two or numbers is called a common multiple

The GCF of the numbers is the greatest common factor no matter what their relationship is. When one number is a multiple of another number, the GCF is the smaller number.

There is no answer. There cannot be a lowest common multiple of a single number, such as 30, because "common multiple" means a multiple that two or more numbers have in common. Likewise, there cannot be a highest common factor of a single number, such as 3, because "common factor" means a factor that two or more numbers have in common.

The least common factor of any set of numbers is 1.

No, the GCF is the lesser of the numbers.

No.When talking about factors and multiples the numbers are integers (whole numbers).A factor of a number means that the number is a multiple of the factor; the factor divides into the number without any remainder.There is no such thing as a Highest Common Multiple - it is always possible to find a higher common multiple (by adding the Lowest Common Multiple to the supposed highest common multiple).There is a Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) which is the smallest number which is a multiple of two or more numbers. It is also called the Least Common Multiple, or when working with fractions it can be referred to as the Least Common Denominator as the two or more numbers are the denominators of the fractions and equivalent fractions are being sought to be able to do an addition or subtraction.There is a Highest Common Factor (HCF) which is the largest number which divides into each of the two or more numbers without remainder. It is also called the Greatest Common Factor. If the numbers are relatively prime (or co-prime) their HCF is 1.

The other number.

No, the lesser.

The greatest common factor, or GCF, is the largest number that can go into a set of given numbers evenly. The least common multiple, or LCM, is the smallest number that a given set of numbers can go into evenly.

When it is a factor of the larger number for example the least common multiple of 15 and 60 is 60 because 15 is a factor of 60 and 60 is factor of itself

The least common factor of any sets of numbers is 1.The least common MULTIPLE, the smallest number into which all the numbers divide, of 16, 24 and 32 is 96The HIGHEST common factor, the largest number which divides into all the numbers, of 16, 24 and 32 is 8.There is no HIGHEST common MULTIPLE as whatever value is said to be it can be increased by adding their LOWEST common MULTIPLE to get an even higher common multiple.

The greater number becomes the least common multiple of the 2 numbers. Ex: 2 and 10. 2 is a factor of 10 and hence 10 is the LCM of 2 and 10
