## Least common multiple (LCM) and Greast common factor (GCF)
GCF (4,6)=2, because 4=2·2 and 6=2·3, If GCF(a,b)=1, is said that a and b are Least common multiple (LCM): To find the LCM of a set of numbers, you must factor each of the numbers into primes. Then for each different prime number in all of the factorizations, do the following... 1. Count the number of times each prime number appears in each of the factorizations. 2. For each prime number, take the largest of these counts and write the result. 3. The least common multiple is the product of all the prime numbers written down. (Remember taking the highest number of times they appear) LCM (4,6)=12, because 4=2·2 and 6=2·3, |
