LCM of 28 and 35 by Division Method
To calculate the LCM of 28 and 35 by the division method, we will divide the numbers(28, 35) by their prime factors (preferably common). The product of these divisors gives the LCM of 28 and 35.
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime number that is a factor of at least one of the numbers, 28 and 35. Write this prime number(2) on the left of the given numbers(28 and 35), separated as per the ladder arrangement.
 Step 2: If any of the given numbers (28, 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 28 and 35 is the product of all prime numbers on the left, i.e. LCM(28, 35) by division method = 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 140.

LCM of 28 and 35 Examples

Example 1: Verify the relationship between GCF and LCM of 28 and 35.
Solution:
The relation between GCF and LCM of 28 and 35 is given as,
LCM(28, 35) × GCF(28, 35) = Product of 28, 35
Prime factorization of 28 and 35 is given as, 28 = (2 × 2 × 7) = 2^{2} × 7^{1} and 35 = (5 × 7) = 5^{1} × 7^{1}
LCM(28, 35) = 140
GCF(28, 35) = 7
LHS = LCM(28, 35) × GCF(28, 35) = 140 × 7 = 980
RHS = Product of 28, 35 = 28 × 35 = 980
⇒ LHS = RHS = 980
Hence, verified. 
Example 2: Find the smallest number that is divisible by 28 and 35 exactly.
Solution:
The smallest number that is divisible by 28 and 35 exactly is their LCM.
⇒ Multiples of 28 and 35: Multiples of 28 = 28, 56, 84, 112, 140, 168, . . . .
 Multiples of 35 = 35, 70, 105, 140, 175, 210, . . . .
