e. 2x3x3x3x5x5x5x5x5x7x7x7

Please answer and explain

What is different between greatest common factor and least common multiple

  • math -

    GCF must divide both numbers. So,

    2x5x7x7 (c)

    LCM must be a multiple of both numbers. So,

    2x3x3x5x5x5x7x7 (d)

    (e) is also a multiple, but not the LEAST multiple

  • math -

    how to divide both mumbers

  • math -

    2x2x5x7x7 = 2x5x7x7 x 2
    2x5x5x7x7 = 2x5x7x7 x 5

    There's no number which divides both 5 and 7, so we've reached the greatest factor of both values.

  • math -

    I understand
    so, #2
    how to multiple of both numbers

  • math -

    Thankyou so much mmrs sue
