MULTIPLICATION OF NUMBERS BY 2DIGIT NUMBERS
Example 1 multiply 25 by 12
Method 1: column form method 2: Expanded form
2 5 25 x 12 = 25 x (10 = 2)

LEAST COMMON MULTIPLES (LCM)
Revision of multiples of numbers
Multiples of a number e.g. 4 are those numbers that 4 can divide without remainder.
Multiples of 4 are: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40 etc. The first multiple of a number
is the number itself. Other multiples are obtained by repeated addition of the number.
Every number has unlimited number of multiples.
Example 1:
Find the least common multiples of 2 and 3
The multiples of 2 are: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24
The multiples of 3 are: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36
Thus the common multiples of 2 and three are 6, 12, 18 and 24
Examples
Multiples of 2 = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 …
3 = 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 …
5 = 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 …
We can use repeated addition or multiplication to find the multiples. Here the first five multiples of 6 and 7 are found by using addition. Multiples of 6 are 6, 6 +6, 6 + 6 + 6, 6 + 6 + 6 + 6, 6 + 6 + 6 + 6 + 6
= 6, 12, 18, 24, 30…
Multiples of 7 = 7, 7 +7, 7 + 7 + 7, 7 + 7 + 7 + 7, 7 + 7 + 7 + 7 + 7
= 7, 14, 21, 28, 35…
Here the first five multiples of 6 and 7 are found by using multiplication.
Multiples of 6 = 6 1 6 2 6 3 6 4 6 5
= 6, 12, 18, 24, 30
Multiples of 7 = 7 1 7 2 7 3 7 4 7 5
= 7, 14, 21, 28, 35 …
Here the sixth multiple of 3 and 8 are found by using multiplication.
6th multiple of 3 = 3 6 = 18
6th multiple of 8 = 8 6 = 56

The smallest of these multiples (i.e. the least) is 6
We say that the least common multiples of 2 and 3 is 6.
That is L.C.M of 2 and 3 is 6
LCM of numbers by calculation (Using Prime Number
Division Method)
What is a prime number? A prime number is a number that has two factors, one and
itself. In other words any number that can be divided by only one and itself is a prime
number.
Prime numbers are: 2 3 5 7 11 13 17 19 …
We will discuss this in detail when we come to factors. Note that 1 is a factor of every
number but not a prime number.
Finding LCM by calculation
Method 1: Prime number division (by prime factors)
Divide the given numbers by prime numbers. If the prime number can divide only one
number, start until the numbers are completely divided without remainder. The LCM is the
product of the prime numbers.

HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR (HCF)
BEHAVIOURAL OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to
find the factors of numbers
identify prime numbers
Work out the common factors and highest common factors of numbers
CONTENT
HIGHEST COMMON FACTOR (HCF)
REVISION OF FACTORS OF NUMBERS
Factors are just the numbers that divide into another number exactly without a remainder.
Examples
Factors of 6
To find the factors, begin multiplying two numbers starting with 1.
1 × 6 = 6 nothing else can be multiplied
2 × 3 = 6 to give 6.
$ Factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, 6
6 can be divided by all the factors exactly without a remainder.
Factors of 12
1 × 12 = 12 2 × 6 = 12 3 × 4 = 12
No other numbers can be multiplied to give you 12. So the factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12.
So 12 can be divided by all the factors exactly without a remainder.
Exercise 1
Write down all the factors of these numbers using the examples to guide you.

56 8. 63 9. 70 10. 32 11. 60 12. 96
Common factors of numbers
Study the example carefully.
The factors of 12 are: 1 , 2 , 3 , 4, 6 and 12
The factors of 18 are: 1 , 2 , 3 , 6 , 9 and 18
The common factors are 1, 2, 3, 6 because these factors are
factors of both numbers as you can see.

Factors are 1 , 2 , 3, 4 , 6, 12 Factors are 1 , 2 , 4 , 8, 16
Common factors = 1, 2, 4
Highest Common Factor is 4 because it is the highest factor among the common factors.

The common factors of these numbers 16 and 24 are 1, 2, 4, 8
The Highest Common Factor (HCF) for 16 and 24 is 8
We write HCF = 8

The product of 2 and 3 is; 2 x 3 = 6
2 and 3 are factors of 6
The factors of a number are numbers that divide the number without a remainder
EXAMPLE

24 = 1 x 24 36 = 1 x 36
= 2 x 12 = 2 x 18
= 3 x 8 = 3 x 12
