Least Common Multiple of 36 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 36 and 43, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(36,43) = 1
LCM(36,43) = ( 36 × 43) / 1
LCM(36,43) = 1548 / 1
LCM(36,43) = 1548

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 36 and 43 with Primes
