List the prime factorization of each number first. Example: Find the lcm of 75 and 180. 375 = 3 * 5 * 5 * 5 180 = 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 5 Next write down each prime number the maximum number of times that it appears with either number, and multiply. 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 * 5 * 5 * 5 = 4500 So the lcm for 375 and 180 is 4500.

Another method if you only have two numbers, not three or more, is to multiply the numbers and divide by the gcf. (375 * 180)/15 = 4500
