# How do you find the Least common multiple of 18, 6v?

Dec 12, 2016

LCM is $18 v$.

#### Explanation:

For calculating LCM of two numbers, we first write all the factors of the two numbers. Then for LCM, we first pick up all the common factors and then the remaining factors i.e. the numbers left out and multiply them.

Here we have two numbers $18$ and $6 v$.

Factors of $18$ and $6 v$ are

18=ul(color(red)(2×3))×3

6v=ul(color(red)(2×3))×v

Hence LCM is ul(color(red)(2×3))×3×v=18v.
