Free LCM Calculator determines the least common multiple (LCM) between 41 and 47 the smallest integer that is 1927 that is divisible by both numbers.

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 41 and 47 is **1927**.

LCM(41,47) = 1927

*Least common multiple* or lowest common denominator (LCD) can be calculated in three ways;

Least common multiple can be found by multiplying the highest exponent prime factors of 41 and 47. First we will calculate the **prime factors of 41 and 47**.

**Prime Factorization of 41**

41 | 41 |

1 |

Prime factors of 41 are 41. Prime factorization of **41** in exponential form is:

41 = 41^{1}

**Prime Factorization of 47**

47 | 47 |

1 |

Prime factors of 47 are 47. Prime factorization of **47** in exponential form is:

47 = 47^{1}

Now multiplying the highest exponent prime factors to calculate the **LCM of 41 and 47**.

LCM(41,47) = 41^{1}×47^{1}

LCM(41,47) = 1927

**Factors of 41**

List of positive integer factors of 41 that divides 41 without a remainder.

1, 41

**Factors of 47**

List of positive integer factors of 47 that divides 47 without a remainder.

1, 47

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

We need to calculate greatest common factor 41 and 47, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(41,47) = 1

LCM(41,47) = ( 41 × 47) / 1

LCM(41,47) = 1927 / 1

LCM(41,47) = 1927

(i) The LCM of 47 and 41 is associative
