H.C.F & L.C.M and Perfect squares

Highest Common Factors

Highest common factor is the greatest number which will divide exactly into two or more numbers. For example 4 is the highest common factor (HCF) of 20 & 24.

i.e. 20 = 1, 2, (4), 5, 10, 20

     24= 1, 2, 3, (4), 6, 8, 12, 24

Class work

 Find the HCF of:

(1)  28 and 42

(2)  504 and 588

(3)  Find the LCM of 84 & 210

PERFECT SQUARES

A perfect square is a whole number whose square root is also a whole number .It is always possible to express a perfect square in factors with even indices.

9 = 3×3

25= 5×5

225 = 15×15

      = 3x5x3x5

      = 32 x 52

 9216 =96 2

=32 x 32 2

=32 x 42 X 8

=32x24 x2

=32 x2 10
