LCM of 36 and 60 is 180

In mathematics, least common multiple which is commonly known as LCM is defined as the smallest non-zero number which is divisible by both given numbers 36 and 60.

- The LCM of two given numbers is never less than any of those numbers. Eg- LCM of 36 and 60 is 180, where 36 and 60 are less than 180.
- LCM is associative which means LCM(36, 60) = LCM(60, 36).
- LCM is commutative which means LCM(a, b, c) = LCM(LCM(a, b), c) = LCM(a, LCM(b, c)).
- LCM is distributive, which means LCM(ab, bc, ad) = d * LCM(x, y, z).
- The LCM of two or more prime numbers is their product.

**60: 60, 120, 180, 240, 300, 360, 420, 480, 540, 600, 660, 720, 780, 840, 900, 960, 1020, 1080, 1140, 1200, 1260, 1320, 1380, 1440, 1500, 1560, 1620, 1680, 1740, 1800, 1860, 1920, 1980, 2040, 2100, 2160**

Hence, LCM of
*36* and *60* is **180**.

- Find all the prime numbers that would divide 36 and 60 without leaving any remainder.
- Multiply the numbers obtained in step 1, and read off the answer!

2 | 36 60 |

2 | 18 30 |

3 | 9 15 |

3 | 3 5 |

5 | 1 5 |

1 1 |

Hence, LCM of
*36* and *60* is **2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 = 180**.

- The formula for LCM is LCM (36, 60) = (36 x 60) / GCF (36, 60)
- Apply the formula, and read off the answer!

- GCF of
**36 and 60 = 12** - LCM of
**36 and 60 = (36 x 60) / 12** **=> 2160 / 12**

Hence, LCM of
*36* and *60* is **180**.

Ram and Deepika are running on a circular track. They take 36 and 60 minutes respectively to go round once. We need to find out at what time (minimum) they will run together again. For this we need to find the LCM of 36 and 60.

So, LCM of 36 and 60 is 180.
