# Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) Calculator

An online calculator to calculate the lowest common multiple LCM of two integers.

The least (or lowest) common multiple (lcm) of two (or more) positive integer is the lowest integer that is evenly divisible (with remainder equal to zero) by these integers.

## Use of the lcm Calculator

Enter the values in the two numbers M and N as positive integers then press "Calculate lcm".## How to find lcm?

A simple way to find the lcm of two or more numbers is to list the first few multiples and then select the lowest.

Example

Find the lcm of 8, 12 and 16

Solution

List the first few multiples of 8, 12 and 16

Multiples of 8 are: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56 ...

Multiples of 12 are: 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, ...

Multiples of 16 are: 16, 32, 48, 64,

The lowest (or smallest multiple is 48.

There is also another method to find the lcm based on primes factorization.
