1. Answer :

2 and 3

There is no common divisor for 2 and 3 other than 1.

So, 2 and 3 are relatively prime.

Therefore, the least common multiple of 2 and 3 is

= 2 x 3

= 6

Note :

To find the least common multiple of relatively prime numbers, we have to multiply them and the product is the least common multiple.

2. Answer :

4 and 5

There is no common divisor for 4 and 5 other than 1.

So, 4 and 5 are relatively prime.

Therefore, the least common multiple of 4 and 5 is

= 4 x 5

= 20

3. Answer :

8 and 15

Resolve 8 and 15 into their prime factors.

8 = 2 x 2 x 2

15 = 3 x 5

There is no common factor or divisor for 8 and 15 other than 1.

So, 8 and 15 are relatively prime.

Therefore, the least common multiple of 8 and 15 is

= 8 x 15

= 120

4. Answer :

4, 15, and 49

Resolve 4, 15, and 49 into their prime factors.

4 = 2 x 2

15 = 3 x 5

49 = 7 x 7

There is no common factor or divisor for 4, 15 and 49 other than 1.

So, 4, 15 and 49 are relatively prime.

Therefore, the least common multiple of 4, 15 and 49 is

= 4 x 15 x 49

= 2940

5. Answer :

8, 15, and 77 

Resolve 8, 15, and 77 into their prime factors.

8 = 2 x 2 x 2

15 = 3 x 5

77 = 7 x 11

There is no common factor or divisor for 8, 15 and 77 other than 1.

So, 8, 15 and 77 are relatively prime.

Therefore, the least common multiple of 8, 15 and 77 is

= 8 x 15 x 77

= 9240
