# What is the Least Common Multiple of 2 and 2468?

*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 2 and 2468 is **2468**.

LCM(2,2468) = 2468

## Least Common Multiple of 2 and 2468 with GCF Formula

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

We need to calculate greatest common factor 2 and 2468, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(2,2468) = 2

LCM(2,2468) = ( 2 × 2468) / 2

LCM(2,2468) = 4936 / 2

LCM(2,2468) = 2468

## Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 2 and 2468 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 2 and 2468. First we will calculate the **prime factors of 2 and 2468**.

### Prime Factorization of 2

Prime factors of 2 are 2. Prime factorization of **2** in exponential form is:

2 = 2^{1}

### Prime Factorization of 2468

Prime factors of 2468 are 2, 617. Prime factorization of **2468** in exponential form is:

2468 = 2^{2} × 617^{1}

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the **LCM of 2 and 2468**.

LCM(2,2468) = 2^{2} × 617^{1}

LCM(2,2468) = 2468
