What is the least common multiple of 11 and 9?
99
The least common multiple can be found by writing up a bunch of
multiples of each number, and finding where they meet. See
below:
918,27,36,45,54,63,72,81,91,99
1122,33,44,55,66,77,88,99
We see that these meet at 99, so this is our least common
multiple
