The smallest of the two numbers could be 850.

I think "smallest greatest" is my new favorite oxymoron. If the GCF of two numbers is 850, the smallest those two numbers could be is 850 and 850. If they need to be different, the smallest they could be is 850 and 1700.

1700 and 2550

No. The smallest coefficient possible is 1, and the smallest GCF is also 1. You cannot have a common factor of zero.
