Least Common Multiple and Least Common Denominator are pretty much the same thing. They're just different names. It's called least common denominator when you're dealing with fractions and least common multiple when you're dealing with multiples.

Ex: 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 4/5 24/30

6: 6, 12, 18, 2, 30 + 1/6 ---> + 5/30

--------- --------

OR

30 is the LCD or LCM for 5 and 6.
