# What is the LCM of 2 ,3, 4, 5 and 6?

LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is the smallest number which is exactly divisible by 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

## Answer: LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is 60

The least common multiple or LCM is the smallest number in which the given numbers divide exactly.

The commonly used methods to calculate LCM(2, 3, 4, 5, 6) are listed below.

### LCM(2, 3, 4, 5, 6) by Listing Method

In this method, we list the first few multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and identify the common multiples.

The minimum or the smallest of the common multiples is the LCM(2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

### LCM(2, 3, 4, 5, 6) by Common Division Method

In this division method,

- we divide the given numbers simultaneously with prime numbers and with the help of divisibility rules.
- when we don't have a prime number to divide the given numbers, we conclude the process.

Irrespective of the method, the LCM(2, 3, 4, 5, 6) is the same.

### Thus: LCM of 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 is 60
