So the **greatest common factor 160,180,240 ** is **20**.

Lets's calculate LCM of 48,72,132

2 | 48, 72, 132 |

2 | 24, 36, 66 |

2 | 12, 18, 33 |

3 | 6, 9, 33 |

2, 3, 11 |

∴ So the LCM of the given numbers is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 2 x 3 x 11 = 1584

Thus GCF of Fractions = GCF of Numerators/LCM of Denominators = 20/1584

Therefore, the GCF of Fractions 160/48,180/72,240/132 is 20/1584

The formula of **LCM** is LCM(a_{1},a_{2},a_{3}....,a_{n}) = ( a_{1} × a_{2} × a_{3} × .... × a_{n}) / GCF(a_{1},a_{2},a_{3}....,a_{n}) x common factors(if more than 2 numbers have common factors).

We need to calculate greatest common factor of 48,72,132 and common factors if more than two numbers have common factor, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(48,72,132) = 12

common factors(in case of two or more numbers have common factors) = 24

GCF(48,72,132) x common factors =12 x 24 = 288

LCM(48,72,132) = ( 48 × 72 × 132 ) / 288

LCM(48,72,132) = 456192 / 288

LCM(48,72,132) = 1584

Here are some samples of GCF of Fractions calculations.
