# The Notion of LCM $\bullet$ LCM of any two non-zero rational numbers always exists.

$\bullet$ LCM of any non-zero rational and any irrational number never exists.

$\bullet$ LCM of any two irrational numbers may or may not exist.

$\bullet$ Also you can start out the discussion here on this note through comments.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

What is so cool about LCMs?

What are the conditions for two irrational numbers to have an LCM?

- 5 years, 6 months ago

According to my understanding :

LCM of two like irrational numbers always exists.

Now what I mean to say like here is :

Let any irrational number being $\lambda$. then another irrational number $\alpha$ will be like to $\lambda$ if $\alpha=A \times \lambda$ where $A$ is any non-zero rational number.

Yeah, LCM exists in both the cases. in one case LCM is $6\pi$ and in the other case LCM is $2e$.

BTW, How were the questions sir?

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Sir U gave away the answer

- 5 years, 6 months ago

But Sir i thought in your previous questions there are no LCM for two irrational numbers nor between irrational number and rational number.

- 5 years, 6 months ago

Yeah, I would Like to Know the same. :)

What is the most accepted definition of LCM sir, which is in accordance with all integers, rationals and irrationals ? (As you may have known, most people like me are having a problem with the definition ).

Can you post questions on Polynomials ? and Geometry ?

Good explanation about LCM'S keep it up::)
