How did you draw this lattice? How two elements are related?
I think this lattice has been drawn like this:

For any two elements a and b in this lattice, if a < b then b is the LCM of a and b and a is the GCD of a and b. For example, if 1 and 3 are connected then 3 is the LCM of 1 and 3 and 1 is the GCD of 1 and 3.
