LCM of 87 and 145 Examples

Example 1: The GCD and LCM of two numbers are 29 and 435 respectively. If one number is 87, find the other number.
Solution:
Let the other number be b.
∵ GCD × LCM = 87 × b
⇒ b = (GCD × LCM)/87
⇒ b = (29 × 435)/87
⇒ b = 145
Therefore, the other number is 145. 
Example 2: Verify the relationship between GCF and LCM of 87 and 145.
Solution:
The relation between GCF and LCM of 87 and 145 is given as,
LCM(87, 145) × GCF(87, 145) = Product of 87, 145
Prime factorization of 87 and 145 is given as, 87 = (3 × 29) = 3^{1} × 29^{1} and 145 = (5 × 29) = 5^{1} × 29^{1}
LCM(87, 145) = 435
GCF(87, 145) = 29
LHS = LCM(87, 145) × GCF(87, 145) = 435 × 29 = 12615
RHS = Product of 87, 145 = 87 × 145 = 12615
⇒ LHS = RHS = 12615
Hence, verified. 
Example 3: The product of two numbers is 12615. If their GCD is 29, what is their LCM?
Solution:
Given: GCD = 29
product of numbers = 12615
∵ LCM × GCD = product of numbers
⇒ LCM = Product/GCD = 12615/29
Therefore, the LCM is 435.
The probable combination for the given case is LCM(87, 145) = 435.
