### 1 Answer

Let x be the other number.

Given that the GCF( x , 161) = 23...............(1)

Given that x and 161 has the LCM = 1449..........(2).

We know that LCM (x , 161) = x*161/(GCF)

So, x*161/23 = 1449

x = 1449*23/161

x = 207.

Threfore the other number is 207.

Tally :

161 = 23*7

207 = 23*3*3

So the GCF = 23

LCM = 23*7*3*3 = , Considering all the factors but common factors for both 16 14491 and 207 only once.
