Factors and Multiples Exercise 4.4 Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(i) 12 and 16

12 = 2 × 2 × 3

16 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2

Therefore, H.C.F = 2 × 2 = 4

Hence, the HCF of 12 and 16 is 4

(ii) 36 and 60

36 = 4 × 9 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3

60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

H.C.F = 2 × 2 × 3 = 12

Hence, the HCF of 36 and 60 is 12

(iii) 16 and 24

16 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2

24 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3

H.C.F = 2 × 2 × 2 = 8

Hence, the HCF of 16 and 24 is 8

(iv) 47 and 61

47 = 47 × 1

61 = 61 × 1

H.C.F = 1

Thus, the HCF of 47 and 61 is 1

(v) 40 and 48

40 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 5

48 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3

H.C.F = 2 × 2 × 2 = 8

Thus, the HCF of 40 and 48 is 8

(viii) 60, 90 and 120

60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

90 = 3 × 3 × 0 × 2 × 5

120 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

H.C.F = 2 × 3 × 5 = 30

Hence, the HCF of 60, 90 and 120 is 30

(ix) 106, 159, 26

Now,

106 = 2 × 53

159 = 3 × 53

265 = 5 × 53

H.C.F = 53

Thus, the HCF of 106, 159, 26 is 53

(x) Given numbers, 101, 573, 1079

Now,

= 101 = 1 × 10

(vi) 108, 135, 162

Now,

= LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 9

= 1620

Thus, the LCM of 108, 135, and 162 is 1620

(vii) 112, 168, 266

Now,

= LCM = 2 × 2 ×3 × 4 × 7 × 19

= 6384
Thus, the LCM of 112, 168, 266 is 6384

(viii) 180, 384, 144

Now, LCM,

= LCM = 4 × 4 × 5 × 9 × 24 = 5760

Thus, the LCM of 180, 384 and 144 is 5760

(ix) 24, 36, 60, 84, 135

Now the LCM,

LCM = 2 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 4 × 5 × 7 = 7560

Thus, the LCM of 24, 36, 60, 84 and 135 is 7560

= 35 = 5 × 7

40 = 5 × 2 × 2 × 2

HCF = 5

LCM = 5 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 7 = 280

Product of numbers = 35 × 40

= 1400

LCM × HCF = 280 × 5 = 1400

(ii) 24, 40;

= 24 = 4 × 2 × 3

40 = 4 × 5 × 2

HCF = 4 × 2 = 8

LCM = 4 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 120

24 × 40 = 960

120 × 8 = 960

(iii) 50, 60;

= 50 = 5 × 5 × 2

60 = 6 × 5 × 2

HCF = 2 × 50 = 10

LCM = 5 × 2 × 5 × 6 = 300

50 × 60 = 3000

and 300 × 10 = 3000

(iv) 45, 105;

= 45 = 5 × 3 × 3

105 = 5 × 3 × 7

HCF = 5 × 3 = 15

LCM = 5 × 3 × 3 × 7 = 315

45 × 105 = 4725

1315 × 15 = 4725

(v) 117, 221.

= 117 = 3 × 3 × 13

221 = 13 × 17

LCM = 3 × 3 × 13 × 17 = 1989

117 × 221 = 25857

and 13 × 1989 = 25857

Question no – (3)

Solution :

Question no – (4)

Solution :

In the given question,

HCF and LCM of two numbers are 25 and 450

One of the numbers is = 75

Other number = ?

Other number = LCM × HCF/one number

= 450 × 25/75

= 150

Thus, the other number will be 150

Question no – (5)

Solution :

According to the question,

HCF of two numbers is = 24

Product is = 7200,

LCM = ?

LCM = product of two number/HCF

= 7200/24

= 300

Hence, their LCM will be 300

Question no – (6)

Solution :

Given in the question,

LCM of two numbers is 720

Product of the numbers is 2160

HCF = ?

HCF = Product of two number/LCM

= 2160/720

= 3

Hence, their HCF will be 3

Question no – (7)

Solution :

In the given question,

= 600 + 7

= 607

Hence, the smallest number will be 607.

Question no – (8)

Solution :

According to the question,

D to A = 40

A to D = 45 min

Now,

∴ Time take = 5 × 8 × 9 in

= 360 min = 6 hr

(10 : 15 + 6) = 4 : 15 p.m. two buses pass the same bridge.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

= 204/14

= 102/7

HCF of any number must divided their LCM. Here 14 does not divided 204.

Question no – (10)

Solution :

In the question we get,

A boy saves daily = Rs 4.65

∴ 4.65 = 465/100

in 2 days = 4.65 × 2 = 9.30

in 20 days = 4.65 × 20/100 = 93

Thus, in 20 days he will able to save an exact number of rupees.

Question no – (11)

Solution :

LCM = 3 × 3 × 4 × 5 = 180 min

180 min = 3 hour after they next toll together.

Thus, they will next toll together in 3 hour.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

73 = 73 × 1

79 = 79 × 1

The HCF = 1

The LCM = 73 × 79 = 9761

Thus, their HCF is 1 and LCM is 9761

Question no – (13)

Solution :

In the question we get,

The HCF and LCM of two numbers are 19 and 114.

One of the number is = 38,

Other number = ?

Other number = LCM × HCF/one number

= 19 × 114/38

= 57

Hence, the other number will be 57

Question no – (14)

Solution :

In the question we get,

There are four bells which toll at intervals = 3, 7, 12 and 14 second

Now the LCM,

LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 7 = 84 = 1 min 24 sec

The time they will strike together next,

= 12 : 01 : 24 in 14 min

= 14 × 60/84

= 10 times

So, they will next toll together in 1 min 24 sec and 10 times.

Question no – (15)

Solution :

First, LCM of 40 and 30,

LCM = 5 × 2 × 4 × 3

= 120 sec

= 2 min

Hence, they will change in 2 minutes.

Question no – (16)

Solution :

First the LCM,

LCM = 5 × 2 × 8 × 9 × 17 = 12240

= 122 m 40 on

At 122 m 40 cm from the starting point they again step off together.

Question no – (17)

Solution :

First, the LCM of 220 and 300,

Thus, 3300 metre far from the road.

Question no – (18)

Solution :

First, we find LCM of 27, 35, 25 and 21

L.C.M = 3 × 5 × 5 × 7 × 9 = 4725

The smallest number,

= 4725 – 3

= 4722

Question no – (19)

Solution :

First we find the LCM of = 48, 60 and 64.

L.C.M = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 4 × 5

= 960

Hence, the required greatest number will be 960.

Question no – (20)

Solution :

From the question we get,

= 7m 80 cm = 780 cm

= 6 m 60 cm = 660

Now, the LCM of 780 and 660

LCM = 6 × 10 × 13 × 11 = 8580

Hence, Number of such tile will be 8580

Question no – (21)

Solution :

From the question we get,

= 6 m 50 cm = 650 cm

= 3 m 50 cm = 350 cm

= 3 m 50 cm = 300 cm

Now, The LCM of 650, 350, 300,

∴ L.C.M = 10 × 13 × 7 × 6 × 5 = 27300

Hence, the largest tape = 27300 cm = 273 m

Question no – (22)

Solution :

First we find the LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7

L.C.M = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7 = 920

We know, Greatest 4 digit number = 9999

Required number,

= 9999 – 339

= 9660

Thus, the greatest number will be 9660

Question no – (23)

Solution :

L.C.M. of 777, 819 and 4329

L.C.M = 3 × 3 × 7 × 13 × 37 = 30303

Thus, the LCM of 777, 819 and 4329 is 30303

Question no – (24)

Solution :

GCM + LCM = 375

GCM + 24 × GCM = 375

= 25 GCM = 375

GCM = 375/25 = 15

LCM = 15 × 24 = 3160

Second number,

= LCM × GCM/First number

= 360 × 15/45

= 120

Hence, the other number will be 120

Question no – (25)

Solution :

Here we have to find the least square number,

Which is exactly divisible by 4 times 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

= 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40

Now the LCM of 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40

L.C.M = 2 × 4 × 4 × 3 × 3 5 × 7

= 22 × 22 × 32 × 70

= 10080

The least square number,

= 10080 × 70

= 705600

Question no – (26)

Solution :

First LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6

L.C.M = 2 × 3 2 × 5 = 60

Least number of 4 digit = 1000

The least number of 4 digit divisible,

= 100 + (60 – 40)

= 100 + 20

= 1020

Required number,

= 1020 + 1

= 1021

Question no – (27)

Solution :

First we need to find the LCM of 12, 15, 20 or 54

L.C.M = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 9 = 540

Required number,

= 540 + 4

= 544

Thus, the required number will be 544
