Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2For the LCM, you need to find all the prime factors, and then you use common factors with larger exponents and noncommon factors too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Ok. Now we have the prime factors of each expression. Now we need to use common and not common factors with the larger exponent. I'll do one by one and will explain what that means.
