Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the LCM of 10 and 35

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiples of 10 10, 20, 30, ... multiples of 35 35, 70, 105, ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh I'm a idiot. okay yes makes so much more sense then me over here. let me do that now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0which is the smallest common multiple

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry jim. I'm a little slow. and its 70.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now with the variable portion, we just multiply the distinct factors q^2, s^2, t^2 So the LCM is \(\Large 70q^2s^2t^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i had for the next one 4(x3) is that wrong?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that's when you factor 4x  12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i do the multiple thing?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats called factorization? dont want to be over here doing something way different then your asking me to do.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah when you go from 4x  12 to 4(x3). It's called factoring

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you factor the terms as much as possible to help find the LCM

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x  12 factors to 4(x3) 2x  6 factors to 2(x3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is the LCM of 4 and 2

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there's a smaller common multiple: it's 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04 is a multiple of itself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i was thinking that but wasn't sure if that counted because it as you said is a multiple of its self.

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the LCM of 4(x3) and 2(x3) is \(\Large 4(x3)\) we only list the (x3) factor once because we list the highest unique factorization

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats what i had before. ill argue that its right if my teacher says its wrong again!! if i need you again ill reach out! thanks so much.. thanks for the patience too!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you can either say 4(x3) or 4x12
