California Standards Number Sense (NS2.4) - Determine the least common multiple and the greatest common divisor of whole numbers; use them to solve problems with fractions (e.g. to find a common denominator to add two fractions or to find the reduced form of a fraction).

Objective: You will learn how to find the least common multiple of two or more whole numbers.

Vocabulary multiple Least Common Multiple (LCM)

The tires on Kendra’s truck should be rotated every 7,500 miles and the oil filter should be replaced every 5,000 miles. What is the lowest mileage at which both services are due at the same time? To find the answer, you can use least common multiples.

A common multiple of two or more numbers
A multiple of a number is a product of that number and a nonzero whole number. Some multiples of 7,500 and 5,000 are as follows: 7,500: 7,500, 15,000, 22,500, 30,000, 37,500, 45,000, . . . 5,000: 5,000, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, 25,000, 30,000, . . . A common multiple of two or more numbers is a number that is a multiple of each of the given numbers. So 15,000 and 30,000 are common multiples of 7,500 and 5,000.

The least common multiple (LCM) of two or more numbers is the common multiple with the least value. The LCM of 7,500 and 5,000 is 15,000. This is the lowest mileage at which both services are due at the same time. To find the LCM of two or more numbers, use the “Stairs Method!”

Two satellites are put into orbit over the same location at the same time. One orbits the earth every 24 hours, while the second completes an orbit every 18 hours. How much time will elapse before they are once again over the same location at the same time? Find the LCM of 24 and 18. 72 hours will elapse before they are over the same location at the same time.
