Least Common Multiple of 30 and 43 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).
We need to calculate greatest common factor 30 and 43, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(30,43) = 1
LCM(30,43) = ( 30 × 43) / 1
LCM(30,43) = 1290 / 1
LCM(30,43) = 1290

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 30 and 43 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 30 and 43. First we will calculate the prime factors of 30 and 43.

Prime Factorization of 30

Prime factors of 30 are 2, 3, 5. Prime factorization of 30 in exponential form is:

30 = 21 × 31 × 51

Prime Factorization of 43

Prime factors of 43 are 43. Prime factorization of 43 in exponential form is:

43 = 431

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the LCM of 30 and 43.

LCM(30,43) = 21 × 31 × 51 × 431
LCM(30,43) = 1290
