# Find the other number when LCM and HCF given

Given a number **A** and L.C.M and H.C.F. The task is to determine the other number B.

Examples:

Input:A = 10, Lcm = 10, Hcf = 50.Output:B = 50Input:A = 5, Lcm = 25, Hcf = 4.Output:B = 20

**Formula:-**

A * B = LCM * HCF

B = (LCM * HCF)/AExample : A = 15, B = 12

HCF = 3, LCM = 60

We can see that 3 * 60 = 15 * 12.

How does this formula work?

Since HCF divides both the numbers, let.

A = HCF * x

B = HCF * yNote that x and y are not common factors, so LCM must include HCF, x and y.

So we can conclude.

LCM = HCF * x * ySo LCM * HCF = HCF * x * y * HCF which is equal to A * B

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// CPP program to find other number from given ` `// HCF and LCM ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function that will calculates ` `// the zeroes at the end ` `int` `otherNumber(` `int` `A, ` `int` `Lcm, ` `int` `Hcf) ` `{ ` ` ` `return` `(Lcm * Hcf) / A; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `int` `A = 8, Lcm = 8, Hcf = 1; ` ` ` ` ` `// Calling function. ` ` ` `int` `result = otherNumber(A, Lcm, Hcf); ` ` ` ` ` `cout << ` `"B = "` `<< result; ` ` ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
