You need at least two denominators to find something in common between them. If that's 3 and 2, the common denominator is 6..

The least common multiple of 68 is 2. if u what to divide the number than the least common denominator will be 4.

The least common denominator is 144. Other common denominators would be multiples of 144. If that's 1/2, 1/6 and 1/8, the LCD is 24.

24 is the least common denominator.6 = 2 x 38 = 2 x 2 x 2 ]Common factors = 2, uncommon factors = 3 x 2 x 2 (12) and the LCD is 2 x 12 =24By the exponential method6 = 21 x 318 = 23and 23 x 31 = 8 x 3 = 24There is none because the Least Common Denominator (or LCD) refers to the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators of two or more fractions or mixed numbers. Even if you converted your whole numbers (x) to their fraction equivalents (x/1), the LCD would always be 1.

Sometimes fractions have different denominators. These are called unlike fractions. When adding or subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, it is necessary to find a common denominator to get the correct answer. This is the same process as finding the least common multiple. Example 1/30 + 1/42 Factor them. 2 x 3 x 5 = 30 2 x 3 x 7 = 42 Combine the factors, eliminating duplicates. 2 x 3 x 5 x 7 = 210, the lowest common denominator.

If you're wanting to find a common denominator between fractions with denominators of 3 and 2, then 3 & 2 have only a common factor of 1, so the least common denominator = 2*3 = 6
