Homework Help: GCD and LCD

  1. Dec 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What is the greatest common divisor and least common multiple of the integers below (answer should be left in exponential form)?

    [itex]2^{3}, 3^{3}, 5^{1}, 11^{2}, 13^{3}[/itex] and [itex]2^{1}3^{3}5^{2}7^{4}13^{1}[/itex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    This is exactly the way the problem is written and it doesn't make sense to me. All the GCDs and LCMs we've had to find so far came from only two integers, but this one seems to have 6 maybe. I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to do with this. Any help?
