Multiples

**Category : **5th Class

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.
