# Find the LCM of the following numbers:

(a) 9 and 4

(b) 12 and 5

(c) 6 and 5

(d) 15 and 4

Observe a common property in the obtained LCMs. Is LCM the product of two numbers in each case?

**Solution:**

We will be using the concept of LCM(Least Common Multiple) to solve this.

(a) Let us find the LCM of 9 and 4

Hence, LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 = 36

Product of the numbers = 9 × 4 = 36

(b) Let us find the LCM of 12 and 5

Hence, LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 60

Product of the numbers = 12 × 5 = 60

(c) Let us find the LCM of 6, 5

Hence, LCM = 2 × 3 × 5 = 30

Product of the numbers = 6 × 5 = 30

(d) Let us find the LCM of 15 and 4

Hence, LCM = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 60

Product of the numbers = 15 × 4 = 60

Therefore, we have observed in each case that the LCM of the given numbers is equal to the product of the two numbers given.
