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..
