there are THREE things here

the 1st is M (multiple) from LCM (lowest common multiple)

25 June 2012

write them out

Example off a question
Find the LCM off 6 and 4

25 June 2012

6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36,
4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28

25 June 2012

the 2nd step is the C (common) part - finding the same (common) multiples from the number's given

25 June 2012

There, you have written out some multiples off 6 and 4

25 June 2012

looking back at the example we will see 12 and 24 is common in both multiples off 6 and 4

25 June 2012

then the last part which also happens to be the easiest is looking for the lowest (L) from your list off common multiples

25 June 2012

12 is the smaller than 24, so we will choose that one

25 June 2012

Goodluck and all the best

25 June 2012

You've found the LCM!
