Least Common Multiple of 41 and 56 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).
We need to calculate greatest common factor 41 and 56, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(41,56) = 1
LCM(41,56) = ( 41 × 56) / 1
LCM(41,56) = 2296 / 1
LCM(41,56) = 2296

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 41 and 56 with Primes
