The same process is used to find both. The only difference is the function of the numbers. When we're talking about fractions, we use the term least common denominator.
I'm not sure if you got the right abbreviation of that term. LCD = Least Common Denominator = 1 GCD = Greatest Common Denominator = 17 LCM = Least Common Multiple = 34
Multiply every term in the equation by a common denominator of all the fractions. The least common denominator (if different) will result in smaller numbers that you then have to work with but it is not essential that you use it.
That term doesn't exist as a practical matter. Since numbers don't stop, the greatest common numerator is infinite. You might be thinking of the least common denominator.
If the numerator and denominator are prime numbers and not equal then they don't have common factors (except 1 which would be a common factor even if the numerator and denominator were prime numbers).
Lowest common denominator
LCM is an abbreviation for "least common multiple."
Divide the numerator and the denominator by their highest common factor.
One word would be "common" as in "greatest common factor" or "least common multiple".
9/10 is already in its lowest term.
1. change the dissimilar fractions to similar fractions by getting the L.C.D or the least common denominator. 2. add the whole numbers and write down the given denominator. 3. reduce the answer to lowest term if possible.
Least common multiple.
y = mx + b, just subtract mx to both sides -mx + y = b. If the slope is a fraction, it is nice to eliminate the denominator first, so go and multiply each term at both sides by the denominator. If both, the slope and the constant, are fractions, multiply each term at both sides by their least common denominator.
It means: Divide numerator and denominator by the same number as many times as you can until they no longer have any common factor except '1'.
It is a fraction in its reduced or simplest from.
When reducing fractions to their lowest terms divide the numerator and denominator by their greatest common factor
you only need is to divide the numerator and denominator by your greatest common factor.
If the numerator and denominator have a greatest common factor that is not 1, then it is not completely simplified.
When you have a fraction, there is a numerator and a denominator. Also depending on what numbers they are, there is a set of numbers that are that numbers multiples. You have to find the number (must be the same number) that both the numerator and the denominator have in common. Then when you find it, you divide them and that answer will be the lowest term.
No, it means average.
That depends what you mean with a "young prime number". I believe that is not a common mathematical term.That depends what you mean with a "young prime number".

Find the highest common factor (HCF) of the numerator and denominator. If it is 1, then the fraction is already in its lowest term.If not, divide the numerator by the HCF for the new numerator.Divide the denominator by the HCF for the new denominator.The new numerator over the new denominator is the fraction in its lowest terms.
You first find a common denominator. The least common denominator is preferable but not essential. Multiply each term in the equation by this common denominator. The equation now has no fractions, only variables on both sides. If the resulting equation is linear, quadratic, cubic or exponential then there are relatively simple ways of solving them. There may be an analytical method for solving polynomials of higher order or other equations. However, whether or not there is a method will depend on the precise nature of the equation.
To find the least common multiple, you need two terms. For example, the least common multiple of 120 and 5 would be 600 and the least common multiple of 120 and 16 would be 240. With one term, there is no least common multiple.
