In this lesson, the instructor introduces a unique and efficient way to find the least common multiple and greatest common factor by using a Venn diagram. The video starts by teaching how to find the Prime Factorization of 12 and 18, and then moves on to identifying the common factors of 2 and 3 between the two numbers. By multiplying those common factors, the greatest common factor is determined, and by multiplying all the factors, the least common multiple is found. The instructor highlights how this method saves time and is more elegant compared to writing out all the multiples of the given numbers.
