Least Common Multiple of 32 and 52 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).
We need to calculate greatest common factor 32 and 52, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(32,52) = 4
LCM(32,52) = ( 32 × 52) / 4
LCM(32,52) = 1664 / 4
LCM(32,52) = 416

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 32 and 52 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 32 and 52. First we will calculate the prime factors of 32 and 52.

Prime Factorization of 32

Prime factors of 32 are 2. Prime factorization of 32 in exponential form is:

32 = 25

Prime Factorization of 52

Prime factors of 52 are 2, 13. Prime factorization of 52 in exponential form is:

52 = 22 × 131

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the LCM of 32 and 52.

LCM(32,52) = 25 × 131
LCM(32,52) = 416
