The GCF of two numbers is 850. Neither number is divisible by the other. What are the least two numbers these could be.

  • math -

    Multiply 850 by the first two prime numbers

    #1 is 2(850) = 1700
    #2 is 3(850) = 2550


    check:
    1700 = 2x2x5x5x17
    2550 = 2x3x5x5x17
    GCF = 2x5x5x17 = 850
    and 2550/1700≠ a whole number

    How about 850*2 and 850*3 ?

    Thanks, but i am still not sure of how you got it. Is there another way ?

    I had this on my homework. Just mĂșltiply until you get what thĂ© question is asking-ex. 850x2,850x3, etc..
