**MathMate**, Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 8:41pmThis is a problem that requires the understanding of the relationship between LCM and GCF.

Take the example of 45 and 63:

45=*9****5**

63=*9****7**

GCF=*9*

LCM=*9****5*7**

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,

LCM/GCF=9*7*5/9=7*5

Multiplying the GCF by each of the factors gives the original numbers:

9*7=63

9*5=45.

For the given case,

LCM=31185

GCF=495

LCM/GCF=63=7*9

So multiplying the GCF each by 7 and 9 will give the numbers a and b.

GCF=9*
