Step 1
Given
\(\displaystyle{a}={2}^{{4}}\times{3}^{{4}}\times{5}^{{2}}\times{7}^{{3}}\)
\(\displaystyle{b}={2}^{{2}}\times{3}\times{5}^{{3}}\times{11}\)
Step 2
LCM(a,b)= Product of the greatest power of each prime factor involved in the numbers
\(\displaystyle{L}{C}{M}{\left({a},{b}\right)}={2}^{{4}}\times{3}^{{4}}\times{5}^{{3}}\times{7}^{{3}}\times{11}\)
GCF(a,b)= Product of the smallest power of each common prime factor in the numbers
\(\displaystyle{G}{C}{F}{\left({a},{b}\right)}={2}^{{2}}\times{3}\times{5}^{{2}}\)
