An elementary false belief in elementary number theory: for $a, b, c\hspace{.1cm}\varepsilon\hspace{.1cm} \mathbb{N}$
$LCM\left(a,b\right)\times GCF\left(a,b\right) = ab$ .
Thus, $LCM\left(a,b,c\right)\times GCF\left(a,b,c\right) = abc$.
In general, $\left(a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n\right)[a_1,a_2,\ldots,a_n] = a_1a_2\ldots a_n$.
