**Example 2.
**(i) Find the HCF of 45, 120 by long division method?

(ii) Find the HCF of 150, 180 by long division method?

(iii) Find the HCF of 25,34,18 by long division method?

(iv) Find the HCF of 100, 30 by the long division method?

**Solution:**

1. First, Take the largest number 120 as a dividend and the smallest number 45 as the divisor.

2. Take divisor as the new dividend and remainder as the new divisor i.e. divide the first divisor(45) by the first remainder(30).

3. Continue the process until the remainder is zero and the last divisor will be the HCF of the given numbers.

Hence, 15 is the HCF of 45,120.

(ii)

1. First, Consider the largest number 180 as a dividend and the smallest number 150 as the divisor.

2. Consider the divisor as the new dividend and the remainder as the new divisor i.e. divide the first divisor(150) by the first remainder(30).

3. Continue the procedure until the remainder is zero and the last divisor will be the HCF of the given numbers.

Hence, 30 is the HCF of 150,180.

(iii)

1. First, take the largest number 34 as a dividend and the smallest number 18 as the divisor.

2. Take divisor as the new dividend and remainder as the new divisor i.e. divide the first divisor(18) by the first remainder(16).

3. Continue the process until the remainder is zero and the last divisor will be the HCF of the given numbers.

Now take the remaining value 25 as a dividend and 2 HCF of 134,325 as of the divisor.

Hence, HCF of 325,134,208 is 1.

(iv)

First, take the largest number 100 as a dividend and the smallest number 30 as the divisor.

Therefore, HCF of 100,30 is 10.

**Example 3.
**Find the LCM of 18, 24, 32 by using the Cake/Ladder method?

**Solution:**

LCM=2 Ã— 9 Ã— 11Ã— 16=3168

**Example 6.**

Find the LCM of 24,34,54 by using the Cake/Ladder method?

**Solution:**

LCM is 2 Ã— 3 Ã— 4 Ã— 17 Ã— 9=3672

Hence Lcm of 24,34,54 is 3672.

**Example 7.**

The LCM of the two numbers is 462. If the product of two numbers is 924. Find their HCF?

**Solution:**

Given,

Lcm of two numbers=462

Product of two numbers=924

We know that product of two numbers= LCM Ã— HCF

924=462 Ã— HCF

HCF=924/462=2

Therefore, HCF is 2.

**Example 8.**

The HCF of the two numbers is 4. If the product of two numbers is 3264. Find their LCM?

**Solution:**

Given,**
**HCF of two numbers=4

product of two numbers=3264

We know that product of two numbers= LCM Ã— HCF

3264=LCM Ã— 4

LCM=3264/4=816

Therefore, LCM is 816.

**Example 9.**

If HCF and LCM of two numbers are 10 and 280. If one of the numbers is 40, Find the other number?

**Solution:**

Given,

HCF=10

LCM=280

One of the number=40

Let the other number=x

We know that product of two numbers=LCM Ã— HCF

x . 40=280 Ã— 10

x.40=2800

x=2800 Ã·40=70

Hence, the other number is 70.

**Example 10.
**Find the HCF of 20,80 by prime factorization method?

**Solution:**

prime factorization of 20 is 2 Ã— 2 Ã—5

prime factorization of 80 is 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 2 Ã— 5

HCF is 2 Ã— 2 Ã—5=20

Hence, HCF of 20,80 is 20.

**Find the HCF of 10,40 by factorization method?

**Solution:**

factors of 10 are 1,2,5,10

factors of 40 are 1,2,4,5,8,10,20,40

Here the highest common factor is 10

Hence, HCF is 10.

**Example 12.
**Find the LCM of 27,33 by using the prime factorization LCM method.

**Solution:**

27= 3Ã—3Ã—3=3^{3}

33=3 Ã— 11

LCM=3^{3} Ã— 11

= 27 Ã— 11

=297

Therefore, the LCM of 27,33 is 297.

**Example 13.
**Find the LCM of 15,25 by using the listing multiples method?

**Solution:**

Multiples of 15 are 15,30,45,60,75,90,105

Multiples of 25 are 25,50,75,100,125
