GCF of 9,12,21 is 3 as it is the largest common factor for these numbers.

Lets's calculate LCM of 36,45,60

### Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 36,45,60 By Common Division

 2 36, 45, 60 2 18, 45, 30 3 9, 45, 15 3 3, 5, 15 5 1, 5, 5 1, 1, 1

∴ So the LCM of the given numbers is 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 1 x 1 x 1 = 180

Least Common Multiple of 36,45,60 with GCF Formula

### Least Common Multiple of 36,45,60 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 36,45,60 and common factors if more than two numbers have common factor, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(36,45,60) = 3

common factors(in case of two or more numbers have common factors) = 180

GCF(36,45,60) x common factors =3 x 180 = 540

LCM(36,45,60) = ( 36 × 45 × 60 ) / 540

LCM(36,45,60) = 97200 / 540

LCM(36,45,60) = 180

Lets's calculate GCF of 9,12,21

### Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 9,12,21 By Common Division

 3 9, 12, 21 3, 4, 7

∴ So the GCF of the given numbers is 3 = 3

Thus LCM of Fractions = LCM of Numerators/GCF of Denominators = 180/3

Therefore the LCM of Fractions 36/9,45/12,60/21 is 60
