The least common multiple of two positive integers is 7!, and their greatest common divisor is 9. If one of the integers is 315, then what is the other?

The least common multiple of two positive integers is 7!, 

and their greatest common divisor is 9. If one of the integers is 315,

then what is the other?
 

Formula:

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline GCD(M, N) \times LCM(M, N) &=& M \times N \\ \hline \end{array}\)

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline GCD(M, N) \times LCM(M, N) &=& M \times N \\ 9\times 7! &=& 315\cdot N \\\\ N &=& \dfrac{9\times 7!}{315} \\\\ &=& \dfrac{ 7!}{35} \\\\ &=& \dfrac{ 2\times 3 \times 4 \times 5 \times 6 \times 7 }{5\times 7} \\\\ &=& 2\times 3 \times 4 \times 6 \\\\ &=& 144 \\ \hline \end{array} \)

 

The other is 144
