Find the LCD of the terms in the equation.
Tap for more steps…
Finding the LCD of a list of values is the same as finding the LCM of the denominators of those values.
The LCM is the smallest 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.
