A number is an exact multiple of each of a group of numbers. For example, 15 and 30 are common multiple of 3 and 5.
Tf one number is a multiple of the other, the least common multiple of the two numbers is the larger of the two numbers. Example: the LCM of 18 and 9 is 18, the larger of the two.
As for example 2 and 4
A common multiple is a number that two or more other numbers can both go into. For example, a common multiple of 2, 4, and 6 would be 12.Not sure what you mean by a "comman" multiple, but a commonmultiple of a set of numbers is a number that is a multiple of each number in the set. That is, it is in the multiplication table of each of the numbers in the set. Note, though, that for this purpose, the multiplication tables do not stop at 10 times or 12 times.All numbers have multiples. Some numbers have some of the same multiples as other numbers. These are known as common multiples.18 is a multiple of 6.18 is a multiple of 9.18 is a common multiple of 6 and 9.All numbers have multiples. Some numbers have the same multiples as other numbers. These are called "common multiples."12 is a multiple of 3.12 is a multiple of 4.12 is a common multiple of 3 and 4.
Lowest Common Multiple-the smallest number that is a multiple of all the numbers in a given set; same as least common multiple. Example-for 6,9, and 18, 18 is the lowest common multiple. =]its lowest common multiple
A common multiple
A number that is a multiple oof two or numbers is called a common multiple
The least common multiple of two or more numbers is the number that both of them can multiply into evenly. For example, the greatest common factor of 4 and 5 is 20.
It's a number that two or more other numbers can both go into. For example, a common multiple of 2, 4, and 6 would be 12.
There isn't a GCM (greatest common multiple) because multiples have an unlimited supply; numbers have no end. For example, the number 10,000,000,000,000 is smaller than 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.
