111 – 3 = 108

129 – 3 = 126

Required number will be HCF of 90,108 and 126

HCF of 90 and 108

Hence the greatest number. that will divide 93, 111 and 129, leaving remainder 3 = 18

**Answer-1**

**Question- 2.**

Find the L.C.M. of each the following groups of numbers, using

(i) the prime factor method and

(ii) the common division method :

(i) 18, 24 and 96

(ii) 100, 150 and 200

(iii) 14, 21 and 98

(iv) 22, 121 and 33

(v) 34, 85 and 51

**Answer-2**

(i) L.C.M. of 18, 24 and 96

(i) By prime factors

Prime factors of 18 = 2 x 3 x 3

Prime factors of 24 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

Prime factors of 96 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

L.C.M. = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 = 288

By common division method

L.C.M. of 18, 24 and 96 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 4 = 288

**Question -3.**

The H.C.F. and the L.C.M. of two numbers are 50 and 300 respectively. If one of the numbers is 150, find the other one.

**Answer-3**

H.C.F. = 50

L.C.M. = 300

Product of L.C.M. and H.C.F. = 300 x 50 = 15000

One number = 150

The other number

H.C.F. x L.C.M. = 1st number x 2nd Number

50. x 300. = 150 x 2nd Number

15000 = 150 x 2nd Number

150 x 2nd Number = 15000

2nd Number = 15000 / 150

2nd Number = 100

**Question -4.**

The product of two numbers is 432 and their L.C.M. is 72. Find their H.C.F.

**Answer-4**

Here, product of two number = 432

L.C.M. = 72

HCF = ?

** Product of L.C.M. and H.C.F. = Product of two numbers**

72 x HCF = 432

H.C.F. = 432 / 72 = 6

**Question 5.**

The product of two numbers is 19,200 and their H.C.F. is 40. Find their L.C.M.

**Answer-5**

**Question- 6.**

Find the smallest number which, when divided by 12, 15, 18, 24 and 36 leaves no remainder

**Answer-6**

The least number which is exactly divisible by each given number is their L.C.M.

Therefore Required number will be L.C.M. of 12, 15, 18, 24 and 36.

LCM =2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 2

=360

Required number will be =360

**Question -7.**

Find the smallest number which, when increased by one is exactly divisible by 12, 18, 24, 32 and 40

**Answer-7**

First calculate LCM of 12, 18, 24, 32 and 40

LCM = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 4 x 5

=1440

But Required Number = 1440 -1

= 1439

**Question- 8.**

Find the smallest number which, on being decreased by 3, is completely divisible by 18, 36, 32 and 27.

**Answer-8**

LCM of 18, 36, 32 and 27

LCM of 18, 36, 32 and 27 = 2 x 2 x 3 x3 x 8

LCM of 18, 36, 32 and 27 = 864

Hence Required Number = 864 + 3 = 867

(ii) True : Becuase co-prime numbers have no common factor except 1.

(iii) True : Because the prime number have no common factor except 1.

(iv) True : Because co-prime numbers have no common factor except 1.

**Question -4.**

The product of two numbers is 12096 and their H.C.F. is 36. Find their L.C.M.

**Answer-4**

product of two numbers = 12096

H.C.F. = 36

L.C.M. = ?

We know that

Product of two numbers = Product of their H.C.F. and L.C.M.

=> 12096 = 36 x L.C.M.

=> L.C.M. = 12096 / 36

= 336

**Question -5.**

The product of the H.C.F. and the L.C.M. of two numbers is 1152. If one number is 48, find the other one.

**Answer-5**

We know that:

Product of two numbers = Product of their H.C.F. and L.C.M.

=> 1st number x 2nd number = Product of their H.C.F. and L.C.M.

=> 48 x 2nd number = 1152

=> 2nd number = 1152 / 48 = 24

**Question- 6.**

(i) Find the smallest number that is completely divisible by 28 and 42.

(ii) Find the largest number that can divide 28 and 42 completely.

**Answer-6**

We know that the least number which is divisible by 28 and 42 is their L.C.M.

L.C.M. of 28 and 42 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 7 = 84

(ii) We know that the largest number which can divide 28 and 42 completely will be their H.C.F.

H.C.F. of 28 and 42 = 14
