The GCF is 12.

The Least Common Multiple (LCM) for 72 252 is 504.The Highest Common Factor (HCF) for 72 252 is 36.

HCF = 3... LCM = 18 !

The HCF is always a factor of the LCM of two numbers. The HCF is a factor of both the numbers which are factors of their LCM. Thus the HCF is also a factor of the LCM of the two numbers.

To do this you first need to express each number as a product of their prime factors: 36 = 2x2x3x3 60 = 2x2x3x5 The next step is to identify any common prime factors. In this case, both numbers have a 2 a 2 and a 3 as prime factors. Multiply these together and you get 12. Therefore the HCF of 36 and 60 is 12. To find the LCM, multiply the numbers together and divide by the hcf: 36x60/12 = 180 So 180 is the LCM of 36 and 60.
