User: define the least common multiple

User: what is the least common multiple of 30 and 42 and why?







Weegy: what is the least common multiple of 30 and 42 and why? Answer: The least common multiple is 210. The prime factors of 30 are 2, 3, and 5. The prime factors of 42 are 2, 3, [ and 7. The prime factors in common are 2 and 3. The least common multiple is (2 x 3 x 5) x (2 x 3 x 7) / (2 x 3) = 210. By representing it as a calculation with prime factors, you can cancel out the divisors, so you have as your reduced calculation 5 x 2 x 3 x 7 rather than 30 x 42 ÷ 6. ]
