1. Least common multiple

In arithmetic and number theory, the least common multiple of two integers a and b, usually denoted by LCM, is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by both a and b. If either a or b is 0, LCM is defined to be zero. The LCM is familiar from grade-school arithmetic as the "least common denominator" that must be determined before fractions can be added, subtracted or compared. The LCM of more than two integers is also well-defined: it is the smallest integer that is divisible by each of them.
