Ex:

1/2 and 5/27

Multiples:

2= 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20,...,50, 52,

**54**

27= 27,

**54**, 81, 108, 135

LCM = 54...

it is the

__least__common multiple of 2 and 27... HOPE IT HELPS DUDES!

**Least Common Multiple**(LCM) of two or more numbers is the least number other than 0 that is a multiple of each.

2 = 2,

**4**,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20

4 =

**4**

**,**8

**,**12,16,20,24,28,32,36,40

Another method in finding the least common multiple is by using the prime factors.

Find the prime factors of 12 and 20 using the factor tree.

12 20

4 × 3 4 × 5

2 × 2 × 3 2 × 2 × 5

The prime factors of 12 = 2^2 × 3

The prime factors of 20 = 2^2 × 5

The common factor is 2^2.
