LCM of 11 and 12 by Division Method
To calculate the LCM of 11 and 12 by the division method, we will divide the numbers(11, 12) by their prime factors (preferably common). The product of these divisors gives the LCM of 11 and 12.
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime number that is a factor of at least one of the numbers, 11 and 12. Write this prime number(2) on the left of the given numbers(11 and 12), separated as per the ladder arrangement.
 Step 2: If any of the given numbers (11, 12) 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 11 and 12 is the product of all prime numbers on the left, i.e. LCM(11, 12) by division method = 2 × 2 × 3 × 11 = 132.
LCM of 11 and 12 by Listing Multiples
To calculate the LCM of 11 and 12 by listing out the common multiples, we can follow the given below steps:
 Step 1: List a few multiples of 11 (11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, . . . ) and 12 (12, 24, 36, 48, 60, . . . . )
 Step 2: The common multiples from the multiples of 11 and 12 are 132, 264, . . .
 Step 3: The smallest common multiple of 11 and 12 is 132.
∴ The least common multiple of 11 and 12 = 132.
LCM of 11 and 12 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization of 11 and 12 is (11) = 11^{1} and (2 × 2 × 3) = 2^{2} × 3^{1} respectively. LCM of 11 and 12 can be obtained by multiplying prime factors raised to their respective highest power, i.e. 2^{2} × 3^{1} × 11^{1} = 132.

LCM of 11 and 12 Examples

Example 1: Verify the relationship between GCF and LCM of 11 and 12.
Solution:
The relation between GCF and LCM of 11 and 12 is given as,
LCM(11, 12) × GCF(11, 12) = Product of 11, 12
Prime factorization of 11 and 12 is given as, 11 = (11) = 11^{1} and 12 = (2 × 2 × 3) = 2^{2} × 3^{1}
LCM(11, 12) = 132
GCF(11, 12) = 1
LHS = LCM(11, 12) × GCF(11, 12) = 132 × 1 = 132
RHS = Product of 11, 12 = 11 × 12 = 132
⇒ LHS = RHS = 132
Hence, verified. 
Example 2: The product of two numbers is 132. If their GCD is 1, what is their LCM?
Solution:
Given: GCD = 1
product of numbers = 132
∵ LCM × GCD = product of numbers
⇒ LCM = Product/GCD = 132/1
Therefore, the LCM is 132.
The probable combination for the given case is LCM(11, 12) = 132. 
Example 3: Find the smallest number that is divisible by 11 and 12 exactly.
Solution:
The smallest number that is divisible by 11 and 12 exactly is their LCM.
⇒ Multiples of 11 and 12: Multiples of 11 = 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 110, 121, 132, . . . .
 Multiples of 12 = 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, . . . .
Therefore, the LCM of 11 and 12 is 132.
