It is LCM(5, 8) + 1 = 41.

HCF(5, 8) + 1 = 40 + 1 = 41

There is no such number since once you have found one, subtracting a multiple of 6 will give a lower number which will meet the requirement. So, for example, -599, or -5999 or -5999999999 all leave a remainder of 1 , but you can go still lower. The lowest positive integer is, of course, 1.

This is a silly question; 1 is the lowest positive integer ( 1x300=300).

There is no greatest common multiple of any integers as whatever number is said to be it, the lowest common multiple of the numbers can be added to get an even greater common multiple. If you mean least common multiple (the lowest (positive) integer that can be divided by the numbers without a remainder), the answer is 312. If you mean the greatest common factor (the greatest (positive) integer that can divide into the numbers without any remainder). the answer is 4.

The lowest common multiple of a set of numbers is the smallest positive integer which can be evenly divided by each number in the set. It is, thus, the smallest number which belongs to the times-table of the each number in the set.

6. 6 % 5 = 1, where % is the modulo operator (a fancy way of saying that it finds the remainder). If you were instead dividing by 8 and not 5, then the answer would be 9.

The least (lowest) common multiple, or LCM, is the smallest positive integer that all the members of a given set of numbers will divide into evenly with no remainder.

I think you meant LCD's and GCD's. GCD (Greatest Common Divisor) It is the largest positive integer that divides the numbers without a remainder. LCD (Lowest Common Denominator) It is the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of the denominators.

The lowest factor of any positive integer is 1.
