Least common multiple calculator

A least common multiple calculator that will find for you the smallest multiple two numbers have in common.

Please enter the first number:


Please enter the second number:


 



Guidelines

Enter your first number into the box on top.

Enter your second number into the box in the middle.

Hit calculate et voilà! Recall that the multiple of a number is any number that divides the number evenly.

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

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, 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.
