# What does common multiple mean?

All nonzero numbers have multiples. Some numbers have some of
the same multiples as other numbers. These are known as common
multiples. 12 is a multiple of 3. 12 is a multiple of 4. 12 is a
common multiple of 3 and 4.

### What is the greatest common multiple of 24 and 52?

There is no greatest common multiple of any integers as whatever number is said to be it, the lowest common multiple of the numbers can be added to get an even greater common multiple. If you mean least common multiple (the lowest (positive) integer that can be divided by the numbers without a remainder), the answer is 312. If you mean the greatest common factor (the greatest (positive) integer that can divide into the numbers…

### What is the highest common multiple of 8 12 and 16?

There is no highest common multiple of any two or more numbers, for whatever value you come up with I can always add the LOWEST common multiple of the numbers to get an even higher common multiple. If you meant LOWEST common multiple, then LCM(8, 12, 16) = 48 If you mean the highest common FACTOR (the largest integer that divides into all the numbers) then HCF(8, 12, 16) = 4

### How do you get a common multiple?

The easiest way is to multiply the numbers together. The answer won't necessarily be the least common multiple, but it will be a common multiple. The easiest way to get a common multiple is to multiply the numbers together. The result will not necessarily be the least common multiple, but it will be a common multiple.
