# What is the LCM of 12 and 19?

The LCM (Least Common Multiple) of 12 and 19 is the least number which is exactly divisible by both the numbers 12 and 19.

## Answer: LCM of 12 and 19 is 228

The two methods that are used to find the LCM of 12 and 19 are given below.

## Explanation:

The two methods that we are using to find LCM (12, 19) are

- LCM of 12 and 19 by the Common Division Method
- LCM of 12 and 19 by Formula

### Method 1: LCM of 12 and 19 by Common Division Method

In this division method, we divide the numbers 12 and 19 simultaneously with prime numbers and stop the dividing process when we don't have a prime number to divide either of 12 and 19.

### Method 2: LCM of 12 and 19 by Formula

We will use the formula of LCM (a, b):

LCM (a, b) = (a × b) / HCF (a, b)

HCF (a, b) is the highest common factor of a and b.

Use this formula to find the LCM of 12 and 19.

LCM (12, 19) = (12 × 19) / HCF (12, 19)

= (12 × 19) / 1

= 12 × 19

= 228

By using any of the above methods, the answer to LCM of 12 and 19 is the same.
