Hi all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was hoping someone could help answer the following question:-

I think of two numbers A & B

The HCF of A & B is 8

The LCM of A& B is 192

What are the numbers A&B?

I do the following:-

A*B = HCF & LCM

A*B = 8 * 192

A*B = 1536.

Prime factor (PF) both numbers to get:-

PF of 8 = 2 x 2 x 2

PF of 192 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

That is as far i can get, can someone help?

Thanks
