Using the Factor Tree Resource from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives:


Note the choice of Computer or User which means the user can select a number to decompose into prime factors.

By choosing two trees, the highest common factor (referred to as the greatest common factor) and lowest common multiple can be found.
Once both factor trees are complete the prime factors can be dragged to the given Venn diagram and the HCF and LCM checked.
