The LCM of 50 and 48 is the least number which is exactly divisible by both 50 and 48

## Answer: LCM of 50 and 48 is 1200

Let us explore more about the LCM(least common multiple) of two numbers.

## Explanation:

The smallest number which is exactly divisible by both the given numbers is the least common multiple.

We will use the following two methods to find the LCM of 50 and 48.

- LCM of 50 and 48 by Listing Method
- LCM of 50 and 48 by the theoretical method

### Method 1: Calculate LCM of 50 and 48 by Listing Method

In this method, we list the first few multiples of 50 and 48 and identify the common multiples.

The least among the common multiples is the LCM of 50 and 48

The least common multiple of 50 and 48 is 1200.

### Method 2: Calculate LCM of 50 and 48 by Common Division Method

In the common division process, we divide the numbers simultaneously with prime numbers and stop it when we don't have a prime number to divide the given numbers.

The solution to our question LCM of 50 and 48 is the same as it is unique and is independent of the method.
