LCM of 144 and 169 Examples

Example 1: The product of two numbers is 24336. If their GCD is 1, what is their LCM?
Solution:
Given: GCD = 1
product of numbers = 24336
∵ LCM × GCD = product of numbers
⇒ LCM = Product/GCD = 24336/1
Therefore, the LCM is 24336.
The probable combination for the given case is LCM(144, 169) = 24336. 
Example 2: Verify the relationship between GCF and LCM of 144 and 169.
Solution:
The relation between GCF and LCM of 144 and 169 is given as,
LCM(144, 169) × GCF(144, 169) = Product of 144, 169
Prime factorization of 144 and 169 is given as, 144 = (2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3) = 2^{4} × 3^{2} and 169 = (13 × 13) = 13^{2}
LCM(144, 169) = 24336
GCF(144, 169) = 1
LHS = LCM(144, 169) × GCF(144, 169) = 24336 × 1 = 24336
RHS = Product of 144, 169 = 144 × 169 = 24336
⇒ LHS = RHS = 24336
Hence, verified. 
Example 3: The GCD and LCM of two numbers are 1 and 24336 respectively. If one number is 144, find the other number.
Solution:
Let the other number be z.
∵ GCD × LCM = 144 × z
⇒ z = (GCD × LCM)/144
⇒ z = (1 × 24336)/144
⇒ z = 169
Therefore, the other number is 169.
