# Use of Venn Diagrams to find the HCF and LCM

Venn Diagrams to find the HCF and LCM Whats It All About? You are going to learn: How to find the HCF or the LCM of two or more values using a Venn Diagram. What skills should you have already? You need to be able to write a number as the product of its prime factors. Example: 24 and 60 Find the HCF and LCM of 24 and 60. Draw factor trees for 24 and 60. 24 2

60 12 2 2 6 2 30 2 3 15 3

5 24 = 2 2 2 3 60 = 2 2 3 5 Example: 24 and 60 24 = 2 2 2 3 60 = 2 2 3 5 Now put this information into a Venn diagram. A Venn diagram is a visual way of representing information. A circle is used to represent each set of information. If some information is in more than one set, the circles will overlap. Example: 24 and 60 24 = 2 2 2 3 60 = 2 2 3 5 Now put this information into a Venn diagram. The rectangle and the

symbol are used to show the universal set in other words everything possible is contained within this rectangle (as in a universe). Example: 24 and 60 24 = 2 2 2 3 60 = 2 2 3 5 Now put this information into a Venn diagram. 24 60 2 2 2

3 5 Example: 24 and 60 How can this be used to find the highest common factor? The largest value that is a factor of 24 and 60 is found here : 24 60 2 2 2 3

5 Multiply the prime factors that are in the overlap together to find the HCF: 223= 12 Example: 24 and 60 How can this be used to find the lowest common multiple? The smallest value that is a multiple of 24 and 60 is found here: 24 60

2 2 2 3 5 Multiply all the prime factors in the Venn diagram together to find the LCM: 22235= 120 Example: 24 and 60

HCF LCM = 12 = 120 24 60 2 2 2 3 5 Make sure
