120

Make a list of the multiples of each number until you find a number which is on all three lists. Or, it is usually easier to find the LCM of 2 of the numbers, then find the LCM of that answer and the 3rd number.

10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, ...

12, 24, 36, 48, 60, ...

The LCM of 10 and 12 is 60. Now find the LCM of 60 and 8:

60, 120, ...

8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80, 88, 96, 104, 112, 120, ... (whew!)

The LCM of 10, 12 and 8 is 120.

There is also a method using the prime factorization of each number. It would be faster for this question, but it's harder to understand and remember.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
