UK English: LCM = lowest common multiple

LCM( <Number>, <Number> )
Calculates the least common multiple of two numbers.
Example:
LCM(12, 15) yields 60.
LCM( <List of Numbers> )
Calculates the least common multiple of the elements in the list.
Example:
LCM({12, 30, 18}) yields 180.


Note Hint: In the Menu view cas.svg CAS View you can also use the following syntax:
LCM( <Polynomial>, <Polynomial> )
Calculates the least common multiple of the two polynomials.
Example:
LCM(x^2 + 4 x + 4, x^2 - x - 6) yields \mathrm{\mathsf{ x^3 + x^2 - 8 x - 12 }}.
LCM( <List of Polynomials> )
Calculates the least common multiple of the polynomials in the list.
Example:
LCM({x^2 + 4 x + 4, x^2 - x - 6, x^3 - 4 x^2 - 3 x + 18}) yields \mathrm{\mathsf{ x^4 - 2 x^3 - 11 x^2 + 12 x + 36 }}.
