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

LCM of 2, 3, and 4 is the least number which is exactly divisible by 2, 3, and 4 without leaving any remainder.

## Answer: LCM of 2, 3, and 4 is 12

Lets see how to find the LCM of 2, 3 and 4

## Explanation:

The least possible number which the given numbers divide exactly is called as least common multiple

The most common methods of finding the least common multiple are given below.

## Methods to Find LCM of 2,3 and 4

Let us use the following methods to find the LCM of 2, 3 and 4

- Listing the Multiples
- Common Division

### LCM(2, 3, 4) by Listing Multiples

### It is a 2-step process, in which,

- we list the first few multiples of 2, 3, and 4 and
- identify the common multiples.

LCM of 2, 3, and 4 is the least among the common multiples.

### LCM (2, 3, 4) by Common Division

In this process,

- we divide the numbers simultaneously with prime numbers.
- when we don't have a prime number to divide the given numbers, we stop the process.

Irrespective of the method, the least common multiple of 2, 3, and 4 is the same as 12.
