Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Better :) But doesn't look right though 50 = 2 x 5 x 5 120 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 225 = 15 x 15 = 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 LCM = Least common multiple, isn't it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That definitely won't be 5 then... Least common multiple would be 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Same as what I've typed. The main problem of the question is to identify what LCM is (definition), and not to confused with HCF (or GCF, you may call).
