LCM of 10 and 14 by Division Method
To calculate the LCM of 10 and 14 by the division method, we will divide the numbers(10, 14) by their prime factors (preferably common). The product of these divisors gives the LCM of 10 and 14.
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime number that is a factor of at least one of the numbers, 10 and 14. Write this prime number(2) on the left of the given numbers(10 and 14), separated as per the ladder arrangement.
 Step 2: If any of the given numbers (10, 14) is a multiple of 2, divide it by 2 and write the quotient below it. Bring down any number that is not divisible by the prime number.
 Step 3: Continue the steps until only 1s are left in the last row.
The LCM of 10 and 14 is the product of all prime numbers on the left, i.e. LCM(10, 14) by division method = 2 × 5 × 7 = 70.
LCM of 10 and 14 by Listing Multiples
To calculate the LCM of 10 and 14 by listing out the common multiples, we can follow the given below steps:
 Step 1: List a few multiples of 10 (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, . . . ) and 14 (14, 28, 42, 56, . . . . )
 Step 2: The common multiples from the multiples of 10 and 14 are 70, 140, . . .
 Step 3: The smallest common multiple of 10 and 14 is 70.

Example 2: Verify the relationship between GCF and LCM of 10 and 14.
Solution:
The relation between GCF and LCM of 10 and 14 is given as,
LCM(10, 14) × GCF(10, 14) = Product of 10, 14
Prime factorization of 10 and 14 is given as, 10 = (2 × 5) = 2^{1} × 5^{1} and 14 = (2 × 7) = 2^{1} × 7^{1}
