= 3072/16

= 192

Hence, their L.C.M. is 192.

**Question no – (5)**

**Solution : **

From the question we get,

H.C.F. of two numbers is 145

L.C.M. is 2175

One number is 725

Other number = ?

**∴** The other number is,

= 145 × 2175/725

= 435

Thus, the other number is 435.

**Question no – (6)**

**Solution : **

As we know that,

16 does not divide 380.

So, no such numbers can exist with 16 as H.C.F and 380 as L.C.M.
