@Calvin Lin please tell the reason of prime factorization why do we just take prime factors for lcm Hoor Ulain · 1 year, 5 months ago

@Hoor Ulain Because that is the easiest way to calculate the LCM for 2 "random" numbers. Assuming you know the prime factorization of each term (which could be hard)

Do you know the proof of the following theorem?

The "HCF" is the "Highest Common Factor" of a given list of integers. The highest common factor is the integer which can divide each and every integer in the given list.

The "LCM" is the "Lowest Common Multiple" of a given list of integers. The lowest common multiple is the smallest integer which is divisible by each and every integer in the given list. Jihoon Kang · 1 year, 5 months ago
