# What is the LCM of 11 and 22?

LCM of 11 and 22 is the least number which is exactly divisible by both 11 and 22

## Answer: LCM of 11 and 22 is 22

Let us understand the least common multiple (LCM) of 11 and 22 in detail.

## Explanation:

The least common multiple is the smallest number which is exactly divisible by both the given numbers.

We will use the following two methods to find the LCM of 11 and 22.

- LCM of 11 and 22 by Listing Method
- LCM of 11 and 22 by Common Division Method

### Method 1: LCM (11, 22) by Listing Method

In this method, we list the first few multiples of 11 and 22 and identify the common multiples.

The least among the common multiples is the LCM of 11 and 22

Multiples of 11 are 11 ** 22,** 33, 44, etc

Multiples of 22 are ** 22,** 44, 66, etc

Therefore, the least common multiple of 11 and 22 is 22.

### Method 2: LCM (11, 22) by Common Division Method

In this division method,

- We divide the numbers simultaneously with prime numbers
- Stop the procedure when we don't have a prime number to divide the given numbers.

Irrespective of the method, the solution to our question LCM of 11 and 22 is the same.

### Thus, LCM of 11 and 22 is 22.
