Multiples are the results when we multiply a number by an integer. For instance: We have number 3. If we multiply 3 by 1,2,3,4,5,6,...,n, the results would be 3,6,9,12,15,18,...,n which are the multiples of 3.

Least Common Multiple is the smallest number common to two or more numbers. For instance: We have 3 and 4 as our given numbers. The multiples of 3 are 3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,...,n while the multiples of 4 are 4,8,12,16,20,24,...,n. As we can see, the common multiples are 12 and 24... The least is 12. Therefore, the LCM of 3 and 4 is 12.
