The LCM of 50, 120, and 225 is 5. true or false?
@NickR You should explain your choice instead of just giving out the answer.
but that requires work :(
225 doesnt go into 10 50 doesnt go into 3 225 doesnt go into 2 so evens are out if 3 is out so is 6 and 9
and nobody cares about 7 or 8 :P
Better :) 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?
yes but needs to apply to all numbers
and i didnt even get a medal :(
That definitely won't be 5 then... Least common multiple would be 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5

Same 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).
my bad good catch @Callisto
