The first common multiple of 3984 is 3984, itself and that is greater than 300.
This is the lowest common multiple which is the smallest number greater than 0 which is a multiple of all the numbers. for example the lowest common multiple (lcm) of 4 and 6 is 12 as 12 is the first (smallest) number greater than 0 that is a multiple of both 4 and 6.
There is no "greatest common multiple" of any two numbers. Whatever their product is, it can be multiplied by any positive integer to yield an even greater number that is also a multiple of the first two. Thus, the number of multiples is infinite.
Find either the least common multiple, or any common multiple, of those three numbers. One way to get a common multiple is to simply multiply the numbers together. Then try multiplying that multiple by different integers, until you find one that is greater than 200.
The LCM of the first twelve counting numbers is 27720
The first common multiple will be the least common multiple or LCM.Since 11 and 12 have no common factors, the LCM is 11x12 or 132.The numbers 11 and 12 are called relatively prime.
5,10,15 6,12,18the above is true if you wanted the multiples of the numbers separately. If you were looking for the three first COMMON multiples of the numbers, they are...30, 60, 90.The first (or least common) multiple of two numbers is also equal to the product of the two numbers divided by the greatest common factor of the numbers. Since 5 is prime, and 6 is NOT a multiple of 5, then the greatest common factor is 1. Thus, the least common multiple is 30.To find the second multiple, take the first times 2, for the third, take the first times 3, etc......
If the second number is a multiple of the first, then the first numberis the greatest common factor of both numbers.
2 is the only common multiple with those three numbers.
402 is the first multiple of 3 greater than 400.
