Least Common Multiple of 10 and 23 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).
We need to calculate greatest common factor 10 and 23, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(10,23) = 1
LCM(10,23) = ( 10 × 23) / 1
LCM(10,23) = 230 / 1
LCM(10,23) = 230

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 10 and 23 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 10 and 23. First we will calculate the prime factors of 10 and 23.

Prime Factorization of 10

Prime factors of 10 are 2, 5. Prime factorization of 10 in exponential form is:

10 = 21 × 51

Prime Factorization of 23

Prime factors of 23 are 23. Prime factorization of 23 in exponential form is:

23 = 231

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the LCM of 10 and 23.

LCM(10,23) = 21 × 51 × 231
LCM(10,23) = 230
