oh no

11. anonymous

If both numbers are divisible by each other then the LCM is less than the product if not then the LCM is the product

12. triciaal

to add fractions you want to add " like terms" and that's the purpose of the LCM

13. anonymous

|dw:1440024105861:dw| im not sure because i havent done this science the 4th grade

14. anonymous

opps i mean since

15. anonymous

lmc stands for least common multiple

16. triciaal

here you have thirds and fifths not like terms so you find the equivalent using the LCM so they will be equivalent parts

17. anonymous

ok

19. triciaal

do you need me to relate it to real life example or do you remember how to add fractions now?

20. anonymous

im still not really sure

21. triciaal

@joyraheb not exactly if one is a factor of the other then the LCM is less than the product

22. triciaal

@rami2021 back to the example

23. triciaal

after you find the LCM multiply each term by this number then all the denominator will be the same so you just simplify the numerator

24. anonymous

i got it now thx for explaining it to me

25. triciaal

to find the LCM of 2 numbers consider the prime factors if you have any factors in both numbers only multiply once

@triciaal well if we are talking about fraction which i think what he is asking for its simply of the largest denominated is divisible by the other then no need to multiply both denom

28. anonymous

That is what i meant in my previous comment i just think people will understand me directly when such question is asked

29. triciaal

that's a better answer though not as complete as mine that tells what to multiply

30. triciaal

" If both numbers are divisible by each other " this is confusing
