If LCM of two numbers is equal to the greater number, then its HCF ____.
will be the smaller number
Let a, b be the two numbers such that, a < b.
As we know, LCM×HCF=a×b
Here LCM = b (given in the question)
HCF = a
We know that for two numbers a and b, HCF≤a,b≤LCM.
∴ Here HCF will be the smaller number.
