### Least Common Multiple (LCM)

Mahalo math expert Allison Moffett shows you how to find the least common multiple of two numbers using prime factorization.Finding the LCM---------------------------------------------------------------------Find the least common multiple, of LCM, using prime factorization of numbers (30, 54).First, find the prime factorization of the two numbers.?Do this by breaking each number down into the factors that make it. Break each down into all prime numbers, numbers that can no longer be divided into.Then, to find the LCM, take the largest power of anything that appears in both prime factorizations. ?You find that the least common multiple of (30, 54) is 270.Read more by visiting our page at:http://www.mahalo.com/finding-the-lcm/
