**4-66th grade math**Least Common Multiple LCM**Objective**• To find the least common multiple (LCM) of two or three numbers. • Why? To help you find the common denominator when simplifying fractions. To help you find a commonality between numbers.**California State Standards**NS 2.4 : Determine the least multiple … of whole numbers … MR 3.3: Develop generalizations of the results obtained and the strategies used and apply them in new problem situations.**Vocabulary**• Least Common Multiple (LCM) • The least number, other than zero, that is a multiple of each of two or more numbers • 4 = 12 • 3 = 12 • Multiples • The product of a given number and another whole number • 2 = 2, 4, 6, 8 ,10, … ∞**How to Find the LCM**Train A travels at 10 sec Train B travels at 6 sec When will both first pass each other? Use LCM. • List the first 5 or so multiples of the larger number. • Then start with the smaller multiple and ask: does this multiple share with this other number. • If yes, that is you LCM. If not, move on and continue to ask the same question until you find the LCM. You will always have an LCM. 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 6 = 10 = 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 6 = LCM = 30 Trains will first pass each other in 30 sec.**Another way to find LCM**Find the prime factorization of each number. Write each PF aligning common factors. Write the product in a list, using each common factor once and each other factor once. Multiply. (good strategy to use with larger numbers) 84 = 72 = PF 84 = 2, 2, 3, 7 PF 72= 2, 2, 3, 2, 3 2 · 2 · 3 · 7 · 2 · 3 = LCM =504**Try It!**Find LCM • 5, 6 • 3, 7 • 3, 9 • 5 = 6 = 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, LCM = 30 2) 3 = 7 = 7, 14, 21, 28, LCM = 21 3) 3 = 9 = 9, 18, 17,**Try Some More!**4) 4, 14 5) 4, 6, 8 4) PF 4 = 2, 2 PF 14 = 2, 7 LCM = 2 · 2 · 7 = 28 5) PF 4 = 2, 2 PF 6 = 2, 3 PF 8 = 2, 2, 2 LCM = 2 · 2 · 3 · 2 = 24**Objective Review**• To find the least common multiple (LCM) of two or three numbers. Why? You can now find the common denominator when simplifying fractions. You can now find a commonality between numbers.**Independent Practice**• Complete problems 7-12 • Copy original problem first. • Show all work! • If time, complete Mixed Review: 13-19 • If still more time, work on Accelerated Math.
