**MATHCOUNTS TOOLBOX Facts, Formulas and Tricks**

2
**Lesson 1: Single Method for finding both the GCF and LCM**

3
**Put both numbers in a lattice**

Put both numbers in a lattice. On the left, put ANY divisor of the two numbers and put the quotients below the original numbers. Repeat until the quotients have no common factors except 1 (relatively prime).

**Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row**

Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row. Multiply the vertical divisors to get the GCF. Multiply the “boot” numbers (vertical divisors and last-row quotients) to get the LCM.

**Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row**

Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row. Multiply the vertical divisors to get the GCF. Multiply the “boot” numbers (vertical divisors and last-row quotients) to get the LCM. The GCF is 2 x 10 = 20

**Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row**

Draw a “boot” around the left-most column and the bottom row. Multiply the vertical divisors to get the GCF. Multiply the “boot” numbers (vertical divisors and last-row quotients) to get the LCM. The LCM is 2 x 10 x 2 x 7 = 280
