Finding the LCD of a list of values is the same as finding the LCM of the denominators of those values.
Since contain both numbers and variables, there are four steps to find the LCM. Find LCM for the numeric, variable, and compound variable parts. Then, multiply them all together.
Steps to find the LCM for are:
1. Find the LCM for the numeric part .
2. Find the LCM for the variable part .
3. Find the LCM for the compound variable part .
4. Multiply each LCM together.
The LCM is the smallest positive number that all of the numbers divide into evenly.
1. List the prime factors of each number.
2. Multiply each factor the greatest number of times it occurs in either number.
The number is not a prime number because it only has one positive factor, which is itself.
Not prime
Since has no factors besides and .
