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

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 askingex. 850x2,850x3, etc..
