Least common multiple: repeating factors

To find the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of two integers, follow these steps: 1) Find the prime factorization of both numbers. 2) Determine which prime factors are needed for the least common multiple (LCM) to be divisible by both numbers. 3) Multiply the necessary prime factors together to get the least common multiple (LCM).
