    I take it those are the denominators of the three fractions for which you seek the lowest common denominator.

    I would first convert these three denominators to their prime factors. 6x+12 would become 6(x+2). the 3 remains 3 and the last becomes x(x+2) the LCD would then become 6(x+2)x...Note that the single 3 is contained in the 6. LCD would seem to be
