The least common multiple (LCM) refers to a multiple that is COMMON to two or more numbers. You have only one number in the question! The least multiple of a number is itself.

The least common multiple (LCM) refers to a multiple that is COMMON to two or more numbers. If you have only one number - whether or not it is a prime - you cannot have a least COMMON multiple.

Ignore the signs. LCMs are always positive.

A multiple is a product of that number and any other non-zero integer.

LCM of a prime number and a composite number is equal to their product if the composite number is not a multiple of the prime number. Here, 14 is not a multiple of 23. So, LCM of 14 & 23 = 14x23 = 322

No. Each multiple of a number is a product, but the reverse is not true. A multiple of number N divides by N without remainder, the multiple is always the product of N times a whole number.

There are many common multiples of 120 and 149. A common multiple is simply a multiple of both numbers. The least common multiple is 120x149, since 149 is prime. (Note: this trick doesn't work on all pairs of number. Although the product is always a multiple, it's not the least common multiple.)

the least common multiple of 5 and 6 is 30 and 30 is the product of 5*6

There is NO greatest common multiple because I can always add another lowest common multiple and get an ever greater number that is a common multiple.

If the other number is not a multiple of 5, the LCM is the product of 5 and the other number.

It is a multiple, and possibly could be the LCM.

It's not common if you have just 1 number. and the lowest multiple of a number is always the number multiplied by 1 so the answer is 618

Unless the other number is a multiple of 7, the LCM will be the product of the two. If the other number is a multiple of 7, the LCM will be the other number.

Yes because you could divide it by the first number and get the second number and vise versa i was also id1147693934
