## jime95 2 years ago two monomials are shown below 450x2y5 3000x4y3 What is the least common multiple of these monomials? a. 2xy b. 30xy c.150 x2 y3 d. 9000 x4 y5

• This Question is Open

I said C because 450 and 3000's lowest common factor is 150 and then you find the least common factor of the x and y 2 and 3.

2. AriPotta

least common multiple or greatest common factor?

3. AriPotta

if it's gcf, the answer is c. if it's lcm, it's neither

4. missichatterbox

that's what I meant. gcf.

5. AriPotta

well the question says lcm. that's why i'm unsure

6. jime95

common multiple (:

7. AriPotta

8. missichatterbox

just common multiple?

9. AriPotta

it says least common multiple

10. missichatterbox

I know, the dude said diff.

11. AriPotta

and 3000 x 450 = 1350000

12. missichatterbox

gcf is multiplying numbers to equal the total..

13. missichatterbox

not together

14. AriPotta

but we're trying to find the lcm lol

15. missichatterbox

i know you still don't multiply them together

16. AriPotta

...

17. missichatterbox

what

18. AriPotta

19. missichatterbox
