Lets's calculate LCM of 9,12,252

### Least Common Multiple (LCM) of 9,12,252 By Common Division

 2 9, 12, 252 2 9, 6, 126 3 9, 3, 63 3 1, 3, 21 1, 1, 7

∴ So the LCM of the given numbers is 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 1 x 1 x 7 = 252

Least Common Multiple of 9,12,252 with GCF Formula

### Least Common Multiple of 9,12,252 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 9,12,252 and common factors if more than two numbers have common factor, than apply into the LCM equation.

GCF(9,12,252) = 3

common factors(in case of two or more numbers have common factors) = 36

GCF(9,12,252) x common factors =3 x 36 = 108

LCM(9,12,252) = ( 9 × 12 × 252 ) / 108

LCM(9,12,252) = 27216 / 108

LCM(9,12,252) = 252

Lets's calculate GCF of 18,42,60

### Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 18,42,60 By Common Division

 2 18, 42, 60 3 9, 21, 30 3, 7, 10

∴ So the GCF of the given numbers is 2 x 3 = 6

Thus LCM of Fractions = LCM of Numerators/GCF of Denominators = 252/6

Therefore the LCM of Fractions 9/18,12/42,252/60 is 42
