### What are the multiples of both 4 and 3?

The multiple of both 3 and 4 are numbers that are divisible by
both 3 and 4 evenly. There are infinitely many. A simple way to
find them is list multiples of 4 (as high as you please) and then
every third one is also divisible by 3. For example: 4, 8, 12, 16,
20, 24, 28, 32, 36...4n. The numbers 12, 24, 36 are each divisible
by both 3 and 4.

### What are the lowest common multiples?

3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24,27,30,33,etc are multiples of 3
4,8,12,16,20,24,28,32,36,etc are multiples of 4
These lists have some numbers that are the same.
12, 24, 36 etc. These are all common multiples.
12 is the smallest of these common multiples. Smallest = Lowest
(or least)
12 is the lowest common multiple of 3 and 4
Notice that both 3 and 4 divide evenly into all these common
multiples.
So one way of explaining this is to say that the lowest common
multiple is the smallest number that both numbers will evenly
divide into.
Math books and many teachers will tell you that to find the LCM
you must begin by doing a prime factorization of both numbers and
then using all factors from each without repeating them. This can
be confusing when there one number is a repeated factor in one or
the other or both of the numbers you are given to find the LCM.

### How do you find the least common denominator of two fractions?

To find the least common denominator, list the multiples of each
denominator. The lowest one they have in common is the LCD.
For example:
2/3 and 3/4:
The multiples of 3 are: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18,
24...
The multiples of 4 are: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20,
24...
The common multiples are 12 and 24. Since 12 is the
least, it is the LCM.
