The multiples of `6` are `12,18,24,30,36,42,48, ...` and the multiples of `8` are `16,24,32,40,48, ...`.

The common multiples are `24, 48, 72, ...`

What is the least value in the common multiples?

- `24`
- `24`
- `16`
- `12`

The answer is "`24`"

**Least Common Multiple** : The lowest multiple in the common multiples of two or more numbers is the least common multiple (LCM) of those numbers.

What is the LCM of `2` and `4`?

- `2`
- `4`
- `4`
- `8`

The answer is "`4`".

The multiples of `2` are `2, 4, 6, 8, cdots`.

The multiples of `4` are `4, 8, 12, cdots`.

The common multiples are `4,8,12,cdots`.

The least of the common multiples is `4`.

What is the LCM of `15` and `10`?

- `10`
- `15`
- `30`
- `30`
- `150`

The answer is "`30`".

The multiples of `15` are `15, 30, 45, 60, cdots`.

The multiples of `10` are `10, 20, 30, cdots`.

The common multiples are `30,60,cdots`.

The least of the common multiples is `30`.
