**Step 1:**Write the multiples of all the numbers

**Step 2:**Find the common multiples

**Step 3:**Find the least common multiples*While this method is easier for smaller numbers, it gets complicated with large numbers especially when 3 or more numbers are involved*

**Example:**find LCM of 6 and 8Step 1:

*Write the multiples of all the numbers*

Multiples of 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, 78, 84

Multiples of 8: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80

Step2: Find the common multiples

Common multiples of 6 and 8: 24, 48, 72

*Step3: Find the least common multiples*

*Least*Common Multiple of 6 and 8: 24
