The key to looking for the least common denominator is finding a number that is divisible to each of the denominators in the fractions (8,18,12,16). One way to do this is to multiply the denominators together. However this would not get you the least common denominator, but rather just a common denominator. In this specific problem, you must recognize that the 8*18=144. 144 is also divisible by 12 and by 16. Therefore the least common denominator is 144.
