LCM of 35 and 40 by Division Method
To calculate the LCM of 35 and 40 by the division method, we will divide the numbers(35, 40) by their prime factors (preferably common). The product of these divisors gives the LCM of 35 and 40.
 Step 1: Find the smallest prime number that is a factor of at least one of the numbers, 35 and 40. Write this prime number(2) on the left of the given numbers(35 and 40), separated as per the ladder arrangement.
 Step 2: If any of the given numbers (35, 40) 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 35 and 40 is the product of all prime numbers on the left, i.e. LCM(35, 40) by division method = 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 7 = 280.
LCM of 35 and 40 by Prime Factorization
Prime factorization of 35 and 40 is (5 × 7) = 5^{1} × 7^{1} and (2 × 2 × 2 × 5) = 2^{3} × 5^{1} respectively. LCM of 35 and 40 can be obtained by multiplying prime factors raised to their respective highest power, i.e. 2^{3} × 5^{1} × 7^{1} = 280.
Hence, the LCM of 35 and 40 by prime factorization is 280.
LCM of 35 and 40 by Listing Multiples
To calculate the LCM of 35 and 40 by listing out the common multiples, we can follow the given below steps:

LCM of 35 and 40 Examples

Example 1: The product of two numbers is 1400. If their GCD is 5, what is their LCM?
Solution:
Given: GCD = 5
product of numbers = 1400
∵ LCM × GCD = product of numbers
⇒ LCM = Product/GCD = 1400/5
Therefore, the LCM is 280.
The probable combination for the given case is LCM(35, 40) = 280. 
Example 2: The GCD and LCM of two numbers are 5 and 280 respectively. If one number is 35, find the other number.
Solution:
Let the other number be b.
∵ GCD × LCM = 35 × b
⇒ b = (GCD × LCM)/35
⇒ b = (5 × 280)/35
⇒ b = 40
Therefore, the other number is 40. 
Example 3: Find the smallest number that is divisible by 35 and 40 exactly.
Solution:
The smallest number that is divisible by 35 and 40 exactly is their LCM.
⇒ Multiples of 35 and 40: Multiples of 35 = 35, 70, 105, 140, 175, 210, 245, 280, . . . .
 Multiples of 40 = 40, 80, 120, 160, 200, 240, 280, . . . .
Therefore, the LCM of 35 and 40 is 280.
