# What is the lcm of two numbers that have no common factors greater than 1

**Solution:**

We have to find the lcm of 2 numbers that have no common factors greater than 1.

If two numbers don’t share any factors greater than 1, the lcm will just be all of the factors of the two numbers multiplied together.

Example: consider two numbers 7 and 8.

The factorization of 7 is 7.

The factorization of 8 is 2 × 4.

Since, none of the factors are the same. There is nothing to combine.

Therefore, the lcm is 7 × 2 × 4 = 56.

## What is the lcm of two numbers that have no common factors greater than 1

**Summary:**

The lcm of two numbers that have no common factors greater than 1 is the factors of the two numbers multiplied together.
