### Here are the Solutions to Above LCM and HCF Questions

Sol 1. (c)

42 = 2x3x7

56 = 2x2x2x7

64 = 2x2x2x2x2

Required distance = LCM of 42,56 and 64 = 2x2x2x2x2x3x7 = 1344 cm or 13.44 meters

Sol 2. (d)

72=2x2x2x3x3

84=2x2x3x7

Required distance = LCM of (72 and 84) = 2x2x2x3x3x7 = 5.04 m

Sol 3. (d)

HCF = 21

LCM = 21 x 221

Let the numbers are 21a and 21b

⇒ 21a x 21b = 21 x (21 x 221)

⇒ a × b=221

Only possible pairs of a,b are 13 and 17.

So, the numbers will be 13x21 = 273 and 17x21 = 357

Required sum = 3+5+7 = 15

Sol 4. (d)

HCF = 12

LCM = 12 x 204

According to the question

x-y = 60

And

x × y= 12 x (12 x 204)

⇒(60+y) × y=12 × (12 × 204)

⇒60y+y2 -144  ×  204 =0

⇒y2+204y-144y-144 204 =0

⇒(y+204)(y-144) = 0

⇒y=144 and x = 144+60 =204

Required sum = x+y = 204+144 = 348

Sol 5.

Ans. (d)

LCM (3,7,18) = 187 = 126

Sol 6.

Ans. (d)

LCM(5,8,15) = 158 = 120
