A least common multiple calculator that will find for you the smallest multiple two numbers or more numbers have in common. See also the **steps** that led to the answer!

Recall that the multiple of a number is any number that divides the number evenly.

For example the multiples of 2 are 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, ....

The multiples of 3 are 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, .....

As you can see common multiple for 2 and 3 so far are 6 and 12. However, the smallest one is 6 so 6 is the least common multiple.

Notice that the least common multiple of 0 and any number is 0. For example, the least common multiple of 0 and 4 is 0.

Having said that, the calculator will not compute least common multiple if you enter 0 as a number.
