Is it possible that HCF and LCM of two numbers be 24 and 540 respectively? Justify the answer.

Dear Student,
HCF = 24
LCM  = 540
Z = LCMHCF = 54024 = 22.5

Since, LCM of two numbers is completely divisible by HCF of those two numbers.

Since, Here, Z= 22.5 which is not a whole number,

Hence, 540 and 24 cannot be LCM and HCF of two numbers.
