  • $\begingroup$ $100$ only has nine divisors....if you can't think of anything else, just work with that list. $\endgroup$ – lulu Jul 28 at 12:09

From the given,

$$a=10n,b=10m$$ where $n,m$ are relative primes and $$10nm=100.$$

Hence from the factorizations of $10$, the solutions




$\dfrac aA=\dfrac bB=10;(A,B)=1$


$\implies[A,B]=?$ with $(A,B)=1$
