### Multiples

When two or more than two numbers are multiplied with each other, the resulting number is the multiple of all that numbers. For example, if A x B = C, C is multiple of both A and B. Multiples of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, ____

Multiples of 2 = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12,____

Multiples of 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, ____

Common Multiples

The same multiples of two or more than two different numbers are called common multiples. Multiples of 4 = 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40,__

Multiples of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45,___

Common multiples of 4 and 5 = 20, 40, 60, etc.

Least Common Multiple (L.C.M.) The least common multiple among the common multiples of two or more than two numbers is called least common multiple. Multiples of 5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, ___

Multiples of 7 = 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42, 49, 56, 63, 70, ___

Common multiples of 5 and 7 = 35, 70,___

Least common multiple of 5 and 7 = 35. LCM by Prime Factorization Method

In the prime factorization method numbers are written in the form of product of prime factors. The common and non-common factors are separated out and multiplied with each other. Their product are the LCM of the given numbers. Prime factorization of $28=2\times 2\times 7$

Prime factorization of $36=2\times 2\times 3\times 3$

Common prime factors $=2\times 2$

Non-common factors $=7\times 3\times 3$

Product of the common factors $=2\times 2\times 3\times 3\times 7=252$

Thus LCM of 28 and 36 = 252. LCM by Division Method

Division method of LCM involves the following steps:

Step 1: Write the numbers whose LCM is to be found in a row.

Step 2: Choose the least prime number by which at least two numbers are divisible. Then divide the numbers by the prime number.

Step 3: Write the quotient and undivided number in the next row just below the respected number.

Step 4: Repeat the process of division by the prime numbers unless only 1 or co-prime numbers remain in the last row.

Step 5: Now multiply the divisor and co-prime numbers of the last row. Product is the LCM. Find the LCM of 12, 20, 32 and 28.

 2 12, 20, 32, 28 2 6, 10, 16, 14 3 , 5, 8, 7

$2\times 2\times 3\times 5\times 8\times 7=3360.$ Relation between Two Numbers and Their LCM and HCF

(a) $LCM\times H.C.F=$Product of the two numbers

(b)$\text{LCM=}\frac{\text{Product of the numbers}}{\text{H}\text{.C}\text{.F}}$

(c) $\text{HCF=}\frac{\text{Product of the numbers}}{\text{L}\text{.C}\text{.M}}$

(d) Required number$\text{=}\frac{\text{L}\text{.C}\text{.M }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ H}\text{.C}\text{.F}}{\text{Given}\,\text{number}}$ Find the LCM and HCF of 40 and 45 and verify that product of 40 and 45 is equal to the product of their LCM and HCF.

LCM of 40 and 45 =360

HCF of 40 and 45 =5

Product of the numbers $=40\times 45=1800$

Product of their HCF and $\text{LCM}=360\times 5=1800.$ If HCF and LCM of the two numbers are 10 and 300 respectively and one of the numbers is 50 find the other number.

Solution:

Required number$\text{=}\frac{\text{L}\text{.C}\text{.M }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ H}\text{.C}\text{.F}}{\text{Given}\,\text{number}}$ $\text{=}\frac{\text{10}\,\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\,\text{300}}{50}$ = 60. • Every number is a factor and a multiple of itself.
