Least Common Multiple of 50 and 70 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a,b) = ( a × b) / GCF(a,b).
We need to calculate greatest common factor 50 and 70, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(50,70) = 10
LCM(50,70) = ( 50 × 70) / 10
LCM(50,70) = 3500 / 10
LCM(50,70) = 350

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 50 and 70 with Primes

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 50 and 70. First we will calculate the prime factors of 50 and 70.

Prime Factorization of 50

Prime factors of 50 are 2, 5. Prime factorization of 50 in exponential form is:

50 = 21 × 52

Prime Factorization of 70

Prime factors of 70 are 2, 5, 7. Prime factorization of 70 in exponential form is:

70 = 21 × 51 × 71

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the LCM of 50 and 70.

LCM(50,70) = 21 × 52 × 71
LCM(50,70) = 350
