Sometimes terms in math do a pretty good job of describing the thing they name. This is the case with common multiple and least common multiple (LCM). A common multiple is a multiple that two or more numbers have in common. You can probably guess what a least common multiple is! To get more information about these terms, check out this tutorial!
