45/5 = 9 45/9 = 5 Therefore, the smallest number divisible by both numbers is 45.

The greatest common denominator is the largest number that is a multiple of the numbers and it is infinite.I think you mean either:The greatest common factor (the largest number which divides the numbers) of 12 and 16 which is 4;orThe lowest common denominator (the smallest number which is divisible by the numbers) of 12 and 16 which is 48.

The smallest number that can be divisible by these three numbers is 42. If 42 is multiplied by 2, 3, 7, or any number divisible by only one of those numbers then that number as well will be divisible by 2, 3, and 7.
