The LCM (1,000,000,000,000 and 1,000,000,000,000) = ? Calculate the Least Common Multiple, LCM, of the Numbers
The least common multiple
lcm (1,000,000,000,000; 1,000,000,000,000) = ?
How is the least common multiple calculated?
By definition, the least common multiple of two numbers is the smallest natural number that is: (1) greater than 0 and (2) a multiple of both numbers.
The two numbers are equal.
The smallest multiple of 1,000,000,000,000 is the number itself: 1,000,000,000,000.
lcm (1,000,000,000,000; 1,000,000,000,000) = 1,000,000,000,000 = 212 × 512
