: What is lcm and gcd ?

:

Least Common Multiple - Smallest number that all given numbers can be evenly multiplied into. 2, 3 and 4 = 12 (2*6, 3*4 and 4*3).

Greatest Common Denominator - Largest number that can be evenly divided into all the given numbers. 6, 12 and 15 = 3 (3*2, 3*4 and 3*5).

I could come up with something, but it'd probably be the slowest code anyone has ever seen.

Ohhh, sorry, I hate that kind of problems, anyways why do you need it ?

PS. You could give your code, maybe there are some opimalizations to do

I am making a program in which I have a compilation of such stuffs, like Mean finder, Base convertor, Prime number detector, Root finder, Exponent finder etc. I am sorry, I can't give you the code. Because, if I do so, my friend would kill me, as he thinks that CODES are more precious than DIAMONDS.

But we are supposed to give up code??? Not a convincing arguement...
