Best Answer

24 is the least common denominator.

6 = 2 x 3

8 = 2 x 2 x 2 ]

Common factors = 2, uncommon factors = 3 x 2 x 2 (12) and the LCD is 2 x 12 =24

By the exponential method

6 = 21 x 31

8 = 23

and 23 x 31 = 8 x 3 = 24

There 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.
