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
Exercise - 8 C HCF LCM for ICSE Class-6th Concise Maths Ans-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.

Exercise - 8 C HCF LCM for ICSE Class-6th Concise Maths Ans-6

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

=360

Required number will be =360

Question -7.

Answer-7

First calculate LCM of 12, 18, 24, 32 and 40
Exercise - 8 C HCF LCM for ICSE Class-6th Concise Maths Ans-7

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
Exercise - 8 C HCF LCM for ICSE Class-6th Concise Maths Ans-8

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

(iii) L.C.M. of two prime numbers is equal to their product.
(iv) L.C.M. of two co-prime numbers is equal to their product.

Answer-3

(i) True : Because the prime numbers have no common factor except 1.
(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.
Exercise - 8 D HCF LCM for ICSE Class-6th Concise Maths Ans-6.1
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
