This is a problem that requires the understanding of the relationship between LCM and GCF.
Take the example of 45 and 63:
So you see that GCF*LCM equals the products of the two numbers.
Conversely, LCM/GCF is the product of factors NOT common to both (shown in bold in the above example).
To find numbers a,b which have given LCM and GCF, divide M=LCM/GCF and distribute factors of M to the GCF, for example,
Multiplying the GCF by each of the factors gives the original numbers:
For the given case,
So multiplying the GCF each by 7 and 9 will give the numbers a and b.
