LCM: Least Common Multiple/ Lowest Common Multiple

LCM stands for Least Common Multiple. It is a concept of arithmetic and number system. The LCM of two integers a and b is denoted by LCM (a,b). It is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by both "a" and "b".

For example: We have two integers 4 and 6. Let's find LCM

Multiples of 4 are:

Multiples of 6 are:

Common multiples of 4 and 6 are simply the numbers that are in both lists:

LCM is the lowest common multiplier so it is 12.

See this example:

The following example will show the LCM of 12 and 20 (according to the user input)
