### Pondering over LCM & HCF (4)

We have talked about Highest Common Factor (HCF) of two or more numbers and Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers.

Why don't we talk about the Lowest Common Factor or the Highest Common Multiple of two or more numbers?

1. The Lowest Common Factor will always be 1, while the Highest Common Multiple can go all the way up to millions, billions, trillions (basically infinity)

2. This comment has been removed by the author.

1. The lowest common factor is always 1 and the highest common multiple never comes to an end.

3. The lowest Common factor will always be 1 no matter what the number is whereas the Highest Common Multiple will keep going all the way up and won't end.

4. The LCF(lowest common multiple) will always be 1 as any whole number is divisible by 1. The HCM (highest common multiple) is basically infinity !!!!!!!!!!

5. The LCF will always be 1 and the HCM is just infinity.

6. The lCM of eany no. is 1. as all numbers are divisible by it.the HCM is infinity
