Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0LCD of a/b and c/d is given by LCD(a,c)/LCM(b,d). Consider example, 5/6 and 4/15. Here LCD=LCD(5,4)/LCM(6,15)=1/30. However, the product of their denominators is 60. This is a counter example.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If two fractions have unlike denominators, then the LCD is the product of their denominators you want a "counter example" that means you want an example of two fractions with unlike denominators where the least common multiple of the denominators is NOT their produce

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so for example if the denominators had a common factor, like 4 and 12, then the least common multiple of 4 and 12 is just 12, not \(4\times 12\) that is all you need for a "counter example"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in simple english you have to provide an example of two fractions whose least common denominator is NOT found by multiplying the denominators together
