**Least Common Multiple (LCM)**

The smallest number, other than zero, that is a multiple of two or more given numbers

2
**3 Methods for finding the LCM**

Method 1: Use a number line Ex. 3 & 4 Method 2: Use a list 3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72 Method 3: Use Prime Factorization Ex. 8 & 12 8 = 2 • 2 • 2 12 = 2 • 2 • 3 2 • 2 • 3 • 2 = LCM of 8 & 12

**More Method 2 Examples: (2 numbers)**

2 & 8 2: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28 8: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80, 88, 96 LCM = 8 4 & 10 4: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48 10: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120 LCM = 20

**More Method 3 Examples: (2 numbers)**

4 & 9 4= 2 • 2 9= 3 • 3 3 • 3 • 2 • 2 = 36 6 & 10 6= 2 • 3 10= 2 • 5 2 • 5 • 3 = 30 * LCM for 4 & 9 is 36 * LCM for 6 & 10 is 30
