# What is the LCM of 5 and 14?

Least Common Multiple of 5 and 14 is the smallest number which divides both 5 and 14 exactly without a remainder.

## Answer: LCM of 5 and 14 is 70

The two methods that are used to find the LCM of 5 and 14 are given below.

## Explanation:

For 5 and 14, the smallest number which would be perfectly divisible by them is their LCM which is 70. We have used two methods to calculate the LCM of 5 and 14 are:

- LCM of 5 and 14 by Common Division Method
- LCM of 5 and 14 by Formula

### Method1: LCM of 5 and 14 by Common Division Method

Here we will divide the numbers 5 and 14 simultaneously with prime numbers until we don't have a prime number to further divide both 5 and 14.

So, the least common multiple of 5 and 14 is 70

### Method2: LCM of 5 and 14 by Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM (a, b) = (a × b) / GCF (a, b)

The Greatest Common Factor of (5, 14) = 1

Therefore, LCM of 5 and 14 = (5 × 14) / 1 = 70 / 1 = 70

So, LCM of 5 and 14 = 70
