# LCM Sums for Class 5 with answers (Solved)

Example 1: Find the LCM of 4 and 6 by finding their common multiples.

Solution:  The multiples of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, ………

The multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, ………

The common multiples of 4 and 6 are 12, 24, 36, ………..

Hence, the LCM of 4 and  6 = 12

Example 2:  Find the LCM of  28 and 30 by the prime factorization method .

Solution. Step 1 Write the prime factors of 28 and 30 .

Step 2. Circle the common factors

Step 3. Multiply the common factors (only once) and the factors that are not common.

Hence the LCM of 28 and 30 is 420.

Example 3 : Find the LCM of 8 and 12 by short division method.

Solution.  Step 1. Divide the numbers by their smallest common prime factor and write the quotient below them. If a number cannot be divided exactly , copy the number.

Step 2. Continue  dividing by common prime factors writing the quotient below each number.

Step 3. Stop when there is no common prime factor.

Hence the LCM of 8 and 12 is 24.

Example 4 : What is the least number of children that can be arranged in rows of 10, 15 or 25 children in each row?

Solution.  The least number of children that cab be arranged in rows will be the LCM of 10, 15 and 25. The least number of children that can be arranged in rows is 150.

Example 5.  Five bells commence tolling together and toll at intervals of  6, 7,  8,  and 12 seconds respectively. After how much time will they toll together again?

Ans. Required time = LCM of 6, 7, 8 and 12

= 168 seconds

So , all the bells will toll together after  168 seconds  or 2 min. 48 sec.

Example 6: The HCF of two numbers is 144 and their LCM is 2880. If one of the numbers is 720, Find the other number.

Solution :For any two given numbers, we have  First number x second number = Their HCF x Their LCM

HCF= 144 ,  LCM = 2880  and one number = 720

The other number=

hence , the other number is =576.
