# What is the Least Common Multiple of 143 and 148?

*Least common multiple* or lowest common denominator (lcd) can be calculated in two way; with the LCM formula calculation of greatest common factor (GCF), or multiplying the prime factors with the highest exponent factor.

Least common multiple (LCM) of 143 and 148 is **21164**.

LCM(143,148) = 21164

## Least Common Multiple of 143 and 148 with GCF Formula

The formula of **LCM** is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).

We need to calculate greatest common factor 143 and 148, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(143,148) = 1

LCM(143,148) = ( 143 × 148) / 1

LCM(143,148) = 21164 / 1

LCM(143,148) = 21164

## Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 143 and 148 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 143 and 148. First we will calculate the **prime factors of 143 and 148**.

### Prime Factorization of 143

Prime factors of 143 are 11, 13. Prime factorization of **143** in exponential form is:
