$8$

#### Explanation:

$\text{one way of finding the LCM is }$

• " Divide the larger number by the smaller number"

• " if it divides exactly then larger number is LCM"

• " If not then repeat with multiples of larger number"#

$\Rightarrow 8 \div 2 \text{ or " 8/2=4larrcolor(red)" exactly}$

$\Rightarrow \text{the LCM of 2 and 8 is } 8$

The LCM of 2 and 8 is 8.

#### Explanation:

2 can go into 8 and 8 can go into itself! But if the 8 were to be a 9, then 2 can't go into it though 9 can go into itself, so for that equation, it would be 18.
I hope I make sense.
