1) 8,9,12,18

2) 6,8,9,27,36

I have trouble factoring the denominators in this one.

3/7 + 2/5 + 1/10

**Reiny**, Sunday, October 9, 2011 at 9:21pmThe LCM is that smallest whole number that each of your given numbers divide into

8 = 2x2x2

9 = 3x3

12 = 2x2x3

18 = 2x3x3

so looking at those, I will need three 2' and two 3's

LCM = 2x2x2x3x3 = 72

As to your second one,

7 = 1x7

5 = 1x5

10 = 2x5

So your lowest common denominator, or the LCM, is

7x5x2 = 70

**Alex L.**, Monday, October 10, 2011 at 1:07pmI need to rewrite the fractions so that all the denominators are the same.
