# Calculate the LCM of 15 and 50

The smallest positive number that is a multiple of two or more numbers is known as the LCM

## Answer: The LCM of 15 and 50 is 150

We will be using two different ways to calculate the LCM of 15 and 50

## Explanation:

a) Common Division method

b) Formula method

### Common Division:

Here, we will divide 15 and 50 simultaneously until we get a zero remainder and will find the product of all the factors to calculate the LCM

Hence, we see that the LCM of 15 and 50 is 150

### By using Formula:

We know that,

LCM (x, y) = (x × y) / GCF (x, y)

The Greatest Common Factor of (15,50) = 5

Therefore by substituting we get,

LCM of 15 and 50 = (15 × 50) / 5 = 150

LCM of 15 and 50 = 150
