Master Math ™ Problems 1.Arrange denominators in horizontal row as dividends. Place under upside down division sign Finding the Lowest Common Denominator 8 16

Master Math ™ Problems 1.Arrange denominators in horizontal row as dividends. Place under upside down division sign 2.Find smallest number that divides into two or more denominators an exact number of times — 2. Make this number the divisor Finding the Lowest Common Denominator 2 8 16

Master Math ™ Problems 3.Divide denominators by divisor and write quotients below Finding the Lowest Common Denominator 2 8 16 4 8

Master Math ™ Problems 3.Divide denominators by divisor and write quotients below 4.Find smallest number that divides into two or more quotients an exact number of times — 2. Divide quotients by this divisor and write quotients below Finding the Lowest Common Denominator 2 8 16 2 4 8
