### What is the greatest common multiple of 3 and 5?

There is no greatest common multiples for whatever common multiple is claimed to be the greatest the lowest common multiple of the numbers (in this case 15) can be added to get an even greater common multiple.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 24 and 52?

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.

4 and 9

### What is the greatest common multiple of 16 and 20?

Answer: Infinity or there is none.One common multiple of 16 and 20 is 320. If you double it, which is 640, you have a larger common multiple. If you double it again, which is 1320, you have an even larger common multiple. You can continue doubling it forever, so there is no greatest common multiple, or it can be said to be infinite.The greatest common multiple of any set of numbers is infinite.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 85 and 51?

There is really no such thing as a "greatest common multiple". Once you find the least common multiple of a set of numbers, you can keep adding the LCM to itself over and over again. Each new number you get will be a common multiple of your set of numbers, but each new number will always be larger than the previous. This means that you can keep adding while the number approaches infinity and you will still never find a greatest multiple.

### What is the the greatest common multiple of any two numbers?

There is no "greatest common multiple" of any two numbers. Whatever their product is, it can be multiplied by any positive integer to yield an even greater number that is also a multiple of the first two. Thus, the number of multiples is infinite.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 72 and 180?

There is no greatest common multiple of two (or more) numbers: whatever number you come up with as the greatest common multiple I can always add their lowest common multiple to get an even higher common multiple. If you meant the LOWEST common multiple (the least number that both divide into with a remainder) then lcm(72, 180) = 360. If you meant the greatest common FACTOR (the greatest number that divides into both), then gcf(72, 180) = 36.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 3474and 26?

There is no greatest common multiple - whatever common multiple you come up with as the greatest one I can add their lowest common multiple (45162) and get an even higher multiple. There is a greatest common factor, which for 3474 and 26 is 2.

### What is the greatest common multiples of 27 72 and 9?

There is no greatest common multiple as whatever number is claimed to be the greatest, the lowest common multiple of them (216) can be added to get an even greater common multiple.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 900 and 1125?

It is infinite but the lowest common multiple is 4500

### What is the greatest common multiple of 40 56?

There is no greatest common multiple: for whatever value you say is the greatest I can always add their lowest common multiple (for 40 and 56 it is 280) and get an even greater common multiple.There is a greatest common FACTOR or a LOWEST common multiple:gcf(40, 56) = 8lcm(40, 56) = 280Using the factorisation method:40 = 2&sup3; x 556 = 2&sup3; x 7hcf = 2&sup3; = 8lcm = 2&sup3; x 5 x 7 = 280

### What is the greatest common multiple of 35?

There is really no such thing as a "greatest common multiple". Once you find the least common multiple of a set of numbers, you can keep adding the LCM to itself over and over again. Each new number you get will be a common multiple of your set of numbers, but each new number will always be larger than the previous. This means that you can keep adding while the number approaches infinity and you will still never find a greatest multiple. Furthermore, even if you had asked about the least common multiple it would not have been possible to give a sensible answer to this question. The least common multiple (LCM) refers to a multiple that is COMMON to two or more numbers. You have only one number in the question!
