No. Factors go into numbers, numbers go into multiples.

No, the GCF of any two numbers can't get greater than the smaller of the two numbers.

The LCM will never be less than the GCF of a set of numbers.

A number can't have a factor greater than itself, so the GCF of a pair of numbers can't ever be greater than the smaller number. The GCF of 9 and 18 is 9.

No, it's never greater than the smallest number.

The LCM of two numbers will never be less than the GCF.

The LCM of a set of numbers will never be less than the GCF.

The LCM of a set of numbers will never be less than their GCF.

There is none. The GCF is never larger than both numbers. The GCF is never larger than the smaller number.

The LCM of two numbers will never be less than the GCF.

Not at all. For example: gcf(101, 102) = 1 gcf(40, 80) = 40

No. The GCF can only be equal to or less than the smallest number in the set.

When their GCF is greater than one.

No.

No, the GCF of two numbers can never be greater than the smaller number.

No, it's never greater than the lesser one.

No, it cannot be larger than the smallest number.

The LCM of a set of numbers will never be less than the GCF.

You need at least two numbers to find a GCF.
