(Click here to see the GCF calculation of 24 and 30.)
DESCRIPTIONS
LCM is equal to the product of the common prime factors on the left and the left-overs on the bottom.
OTHER INFORMATION
Common multiples of 24 and 30 are 120, 240, 360 ...
The least common multiple (LCM) of two positive whole numbers is the smallest number that is divisible by these numbers. The least common multiple of a set of numbers can be found by using the upside-down cake method (or the ladder method).
In this method, we apply the same algorithm as GCF. To calculate LCM, we multiply all prime numbers on the left and the leftovers on the right.
