The lowest common multiple is the smallest positive number that is a multiple of two or more numbers. For example, the LCM of 4 and 5, would be 20. Given the 4 times tables: 4,8,12,16,20,24 and 5 times tables: 5,10,15,20,25 - we can see the lowest number they have in common is 20.

LCM stands for the lowest common multiple, so what are the smallest 2/more numbers that can be multiplied to give you your big number. For example the LCM of 3 and 5 will be 15 since that is the smallest number that is present in the 5 times table and the 3 times table.

Hope this helps!

LCM stands for Lowest Common Multiple- the LCM of two numbers is the smallest number that both of the original numbers divide!

# LCM stands for Lowest Common Multiple.

It is the lowest number that can be a multiple of a set of given numbers.

For example: If you are given a set of numbers 10, 20, 40

Some common multiples of this set are: 40, 80, 120

10 (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80...)

20 (20, 40, 60, 80, 100, 120...)

40 (40, 80, 120, 160, 200...)

Therefore, the Lowest common multiple would be 40

Hope this helped :)

LCM is the term used for 'Lowest Common Multiple'

This term is used when you are searching for a number that can be divisible by the two numbers in the question.

For example,

What is the LCM of 8 and 12?

The answer would be 24 because this is the lowest number in both times tables.

8, 16, 24, 32

12, 24, 36, 48

R

Least common multiple

LCM is the method to find the smallest possible multiple of two or more numbers. LCM stands for Least common multiple. LCM of two numbers is divisible by both numbers. For example, the LCM of 6 and 8 is 24. Hence 24 is divisible by both 6 and 8

L

LCM is the lowest common multiple which is the smallest possible number that can be divided by all given numbers. For example the LCM of 12 and 18 is 36 because 36 is the smallest positive number that is divisible by both 12 and 18. Another example is the LCM of 12, 15 and 75 is 300 because like above 300 is the smallest positive number that is divisible by all three numbers.

A

LCM (Lowest Common Multiple) is the method to work out the smallest multiple for two integers eg. LCM of 6 and 18 would be 36.

D

Lowest Common Multiple. This means the smallest number that is a multiple of 2 or more numbers. For example, the LCM of 20 and 30 is 60. If we look at the 20 times table: 20, 30, 60, 80, 100.... and then the 30 times table: 30, 60, 90, 120, 150... the first number that appears in both the 20 and 30 times table is known as the LCM. In this case, 60.

Y

LCM stands for Least common multiple, which is the method to find the smallest multiple of two or more numbers.

J

LCM stands for the Lowest Common Multiple.

This represents the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of two different numbers being considered.

If we were to ask what is the lowest common multiple of 6 and 10. We start off by listing the multiples of each of those numbers:

Number Six - 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36,... (we just increase by 6 each time)

Number Ten - 10, 20, 30, 40, 50,...(we just increase by 10 each time)

So we are looking for the smallest multiple of both numbers. Well we can see the only multiple that these two numbers share is 30, so 30 is the LCM of both 6 and 10.

N

The lowest common multiple.

The smallest number that is the product of 2 or more numbers. In other words, the smallest number that can be found in the times table of 2 or more numbers.

O

LCM is the way to find the smallest possible multiple of two or more numbers. The lowest number that can divide two numbers. LCM stands for Lowest Common Multiple. LCM of two numbers is divisible by both numbers. For example, the LCM of 3 and 4 is 12. Hence 12 is divisible by both 3 and 4.

S

Least Common Multiple

R

LCM means Lowest Common Multiple.

Multiple is another way of saying the numbers in the times table of a number.

So Lowest Common Multiple is the smallest number that would be in the times table list of 2 different numbers.

Z

LCM = Least Common Multiple

Take the multiples of 3 and 6 for example.

3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18...

6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30...

6, 12 and 18 are common multiples of 3 and 6. However 6, is the least common multiple

N

Lowest Common Multiple. The smallest number that 2 or more numbers have in their times table e.g. 2 and 6 have 12 and 24 in common

H

LCM is lowest common multiple. It is the lowest number that can be divided into a set of numbers without a remainder. We use it for things like finding a common denominator when working with fractions. For example, the lowest common multiple of 2 and 5 is 10.

H

LCM stands for the least common multiple. The least common multiple is the smallest multiple of two or more numbers. The easiest way to visualise it is to list the multiples of the numbers.

So for instance, if we are finding the LCM of 3 and 5 we would list the multiples of each:

3 - 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30

5 - 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50

We would then look for the smallest common number in both of the lists which is 15.

M

LCM stands for lowest common multiple. This means the lowest positive number that is a factor of these numbers listed. For example, if you were asked to find the LCM of 4 and 9, it would be 36.

L

LCM is the lowest common multiple of two or more integers. For example, the LCM of 16 and 20 will be 2x2x2x2x5=80 where 80 is the smallest common multiple. Verified Sherpa Tutor

Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) is the lowest multiple shared by 2+ numbers.

For example, the multiples of 20 are: 20, 40, 60, 80, and the multiples of 30 are: 30, 60, 90, 120.

The lowest integer that both numbers share is 60, so 60 is the LCM of 20 and 30!

The lowest common multiple (LCM) of some numbers is the lowest possible number that is divisible by all those numbers . For example the LCM of 2,3, and 5 is 30. Why? because 30 is the lowest possible number divisible by all of 2, 3 and 5.

T

The Lowest Common Multiple. This is when you are finding the lowest number that two numbers can go into. For example, the lowest common multiple of 6 and 3 is 12, because 6 and 3 are both factors of 12.

S

A LCM is the Lowest/Least Common Multiple. This is the lowest number that is a multiple and that is shared between two or more numbers.

For example, if asked what the lowest common multiple is between 3 and 10, we would need to find all the multiples of 3 and 10:

3- 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36...

10- 10, 20, 30, 40, 50...

Since 30 is the lowest number that appears in both lists, the LCM of 3 and 10 is 30.
