I would use upside down division.

You could do prime factorization using factor trees, but I find that to be confusing and messy.

\(2|\underline{46~~~1000}\) \(~~~23~~~~~500\) The GCF is the numbers on the left multiplied together.(In this case there is only 1 #) The LCM is the numbers on the left and bottom multiplied together. This way you don't have to find the GCF right away, just find a factor.
