Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Look to the explanationStep-by-step explanation:- Multiples of a number are the numbers after multiplying the number by an integer- Ex: The multiples of 2 are 2 , 4 , 6 , 8 , .......... because 2 × 1 = 2 , 2 × 4 = 4 , 2 × 3 = 6 and 2 × 4 = 8- Factors of a number are the number multiplied together to get the number- Ex: The factors of 6 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 because 1 × 6 = 6 and 2 × 3 = 6- Lowest common multiple of the set of numbers (LCM) is the smallest number divisible by these numbers- Ex: The lowest common multiple of 2 and 3 is 6 because 6 is divisible by 2 and 3 and there is no number before it divisible by both - Greatest common factor of the set of numbers (GCF) is the highest common factor of these numbers - Ex: The greatest common factor of 12 and 18 is 6 because→ The factors of 12 are 1 , 2 , 3, 4, 6, 12→ The factors of 18 are 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 9 , 18→ The greatest common factor on both numbers is 6
