LCM of decimals calculator gives the LCM of Decimal numbers given 3.6, 4.8, 7.2 i.e. 14.4 the smallest number that divides all of them exactly.

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 3.6, 4.8, 7.2 is 14.4.

LCM(3.6, 4.8, 7.2) = 14.4

## LCM of 3.6, 4.8, 7.2

Enter two or more decimals separated by "commas"

Ex: 0.2, 0.3 or 0.4, 0.5, 0.6

LCM of: Given numbers are 3.6,4.8,7.2. The highest number of digits after the decimal point in the given case is 1

Thus, in order to get rid of the decimal point we need to multiply them with 10. On doing so, they are as follows

3.6 x 10 = 36

4.8 x 10 = 48

7.2 x 10 = 72

On finding the LCM of 36,48,72 we get the Least Common Multiple as 144

### Least Common Multiple 3.6,4.8,7.2 is 14.4

 2 36, 48, 72 2 18, 24, 36 2 9, 12, 18 3 9, 6, 9 3 3, 2, 3 1, 2, 1

∴ So the LCM of the given numbers is 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 1 x 2 x 1 = 144

Divide the result you got with the number you multiplied to make it as integer in the first step. In this case, we need to divide by 10 as we used it to make the given numbers into integers.

On dividing the LCM 144/10 we get 14.4

Thus the Least Common Multiple of 3.6,4.8,7.2 is 14.4

Least Common Multiple of 36,48,72 with GCF Formula

### Least Common Multiple of 36,48,72 with GCF Formula

The formula of LCM is LCM(a1,a2,a3....,an) = ( a1 × a2 × a3 × .... × an) / GCF(a1,a2,a3....,an) x common factors(if more than 2 numbers have common factors).

We need to calculate greatest common factor of 36,48,72 and common factors if more than two numbers have common factor, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(36,48,72) = 12

common factors(in case of two or more numbers have common factors) = 72

GCF(36,48,72) x common factors =12 x 72 = 864

LCM(36,48,72) = ( 36 × 48 × 72 ) / 864

LCM(36,48,72) = 124416 / 864

LCM(36,48,72) = 144
