find 2 positive intergers, "a" and "b", such that: a+b = 1640 LCM[a,b] = 8400 my trial and error method got a right answer, but the teacher showed a pretty cool way to get it.

\[8400=2^4.3^1.5^2.7^1\]\[1640=2^3~5^1~41^1\] \[\large a=2^{m_1}~3^{m_2}~5^{m_3}~7^{m_4}\]\[\large b=2^{n_1}~3^{n_2}~5^{n_3}~7^{n_4}\] \[\large a+b=(2^{m_1}~3^{m_2}~5^{m_3}~7^{m_4})~+~(2^{n_1}~3^{n_2}~5^{n_3}~7^{n_4})=2^3~5^1~41^1\] \[m_1,n_1\le4\]\[m_2,n_2\le1\]\[m_3,n_3\le2\]\[m_4,n_4\le1\] divide each side by common factors \(\large 2^3~5^1\)

\[\large \bar a+\bar b=(2^{m_1-3}~3^{m_2}~5^{m_3-1}~7^{m_4})~+~(2^{n_1-3}~3^{n_2}~5^{n_3-1}~7^{n_4})=41\] all exponents then reduce to possibilities of 0 or 1, and there are no common factors between a and b at this point therefore we can systematically go thru and find a solution
