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.

### What is the lowest number divided by 6 gives remainder 1?

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.
