36 factored is = 2x3x2x3 48 factored is = 2x2x2x2x3

since 36 has more "3's" in it we ignore the single 3 in 48

since 48 has more "2's" in it we ignore the two 2's in 36

Putting the 3's from 36 and the 2's from 48 together we get 2x2x2x2x3x3 which equals 144.

Both 36 and 48 will go into 144.
The Least Common Multiple (LCM) for 48 36 is 144.
