LCM of 20 and 35 by Division Method
To calculate the LCM of 20 and 35 by the division method, we will divide the numbers(20, 35) by their prime factors (preferably common). The product of these divisors gives the LCM of 20 and 35.
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime number that is a factor of at least one of the numbers, 20 and 35. Write this prime number(2) on the left of the given numbers(20 and 35), separated as per the ladder arrangement.
 Step 2: If any of the given numbers (20, 35) 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 20 and 35 is the product of all prime numbers on the left, i.e. LCM(20, 35) by division method = 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 140.
LCM of 20 and 35 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization of 20 and 35 is (2 × 2 × 5) = 2^{2} × 5^{1} and (5 × 7) = 5^{1} × 7^{1} respectively. LCM of 20 and 35 can be obtained by multiplying prime factors raised to their respective highest power, i.e. 2^{2} × 5^{1} × 7^{1} = 140.
Hence, the LCM of 20 and 35 by prime factorization is 140.
LCM of 20 and 35 by Listing Multiples

LCM of 20 and 35 Examples

Example 1: The GCD and LCM of two numbers are 5 and 140 respectively. If one number is 20, find the other number.
Solution:
Let the other number be m.
∵ GCD × LCM = 20 × m
⇒ m = (GCD × LCM)/20
⇒ m = (5 × 140)/20
⇒ m = 35
Therefore, the other number is 35. 
Example 2: The product of two numbers is 700. If their GCD is 5, what is their LCM?
Solution:
Given: GCD = 5
product of numbers = 700
∵ LCM × GCD = product of numbers
⇒ LCM = Product/GCD = 700/5
Therefore, the LCM is 140.
The probable combination for the given case is LCM(20, 35) = 140. 
Example 3: Find the smallest number that is divisible by 20 and 35 exactly.
Solution:
The smallest number that is divisible by 20 and 35 exactly is their LCM.
