what is the least common multiple


The least common multiple is the lowest possible number that has both numbers for a factor. For instance, if you are asked to find the LCM for 4 and 8, the LCM would be 8 because it is divisible by both 4 and 8. If you were given 3 and 4, the LCM would be 12, because it is the lowest possible number that is divisible by both 3 and 4.
