Ignore the signs. LCMs are always positive.

Another number is needed

It is not possible to give a sensible answer to this question. 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 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 of 180 is itself.Two numbers which equal the LCM = 1 and 179 (added together).

There is an infinite number of common multiples for 30 and 60. A common multiple of any two or more numbers is any number into which each of two or more numbers can be divided evenly (zero remainder). However, the least or lowest common multiple (LCM) of 30 and 60 is 60.

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.)

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
