1700 = 850 X 2

The smallest that these two numbers can be is 2*871 and 4*871.

If the GCF of two numbers is 850, both numbers are multiples of 850. Multiples of 850 include 850, 1700, 2250 and so on. The smallest two numbers that have a GCF of 850 are 850 and 1700. But 1700 is divisible by 850. 1700 and 2250 are the next two smallest and are not divisible by each other.

Two even numbers won't have an odd GCF.

Every number is divisible by 1. Including negative numbers, that's an infinite list. There is no smallest.
