Know Least Common Multiple of fractions 12/14, 16/18, 20/40 quickly i.e. 120 the smallest number that is divisible by all numbers by taking the help of LCM of Fractions Calculator.

Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 12/14, 16/18, 20/40 is **120**.

LCM(12/14, 16/18, 20/40) = 120

Enter two or more fractions separated by **"commas"**

Ex: 2/3, 5/7 or 3/5, 5/9, 7/3

Given numbers are 12/14,16/18,20/40

Formula to find LCM of Fractions is

LCM = LCM of Numerators/GCF of Denominators

As per the formula LCM of Fractions let’s split into two parts and find the LCM of Numerators and GCF of Denominators

In the given fractions LCM of Numerators means LCM of 12,16,20

Least Common Multiple of Numerators i.e. LCM of 12,16,20 is 240.

GCF of Denominators means GCF of 14,18,40 as per the given fractions.

GCF of 14,18,40 is 2 as it is the largest common factor for these numbers.

Lets's calculate LCM of 12,16,20

2 | 12, 16, 20 |

2 | 6, 8, 10 |

3, 4, 5 |

∴ So the LCM of the given numbers is 2 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 = 240

The formula of **LCM** is LCM(a_{1},a_{2},a_{3}....,a_{n}) = ( a_{1} × a_{2} × a_{3} × .... × a_{n}) / GCF(a_{1},a_{2},a_{3}....,a_{n}) x common factors(if more than 2 numbers have common factors).

We need to calculate greatest common factor of 12,16,20 and common factors if more than two numbers have common factor, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(12,16,20) = 4

common factors(in case of two or more numbers have common factors) = 4

GCF(12,16,20) x common factors =4 x 4 = 16

LCM(12,16,20) = ( 12 × 16 × 20 ) / 16

LCM(12,16,20) = 3840 / 16

LCM(12,16,20) = 240

Lets's calculate GCF of 14,18,40

2 | 14, 18, 40 |

7, 9, 20 |

∴ So the GCF of the given numbers is 2 = 2

Thus LCM of Fractions = LCM of Numerators/GCF of Denominators = 240/2

Therefore the LCM of Fractions 12/14,16/18,20/40 is 120
