# What is the least common denominator of 6 and 32?

There is none because the Least Common Denominator (or LCD) is
the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of the denominators of two or more
**fractions**. Even if you converted your numbers (x) to their
fraction equivalents (x/1), the LCD will always be 1.

### What is the least common multiple of 3 6 and 12?

The LCM of 3, 6, and 12 is 12. The least common denominator is the same as the least common multiple. The least common denominator is the smallest multiple divisible by 3, 6, and 12. Since 12 is divisible by 3, 6, and 12, and the smallest multiple of 12 is 12 x 1 = 12, that is the least common denominator or least common multiple.

### How are the least common multiple and least common denominator related?

Least Common Multiple and Least Common Denominator are pretty much the same thing. They're just different names. It's called least common denominator when you're dealing with fractions and least common multiple when you're dealing with multiples. Ex: 5: 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 4/5 24/30 6: 6, 12, 18, 2, 30 + 1/6 ---> + 5/30 --------- -------- Final Answer:29/30 OR 30 is the LCD or LCM for 5 and 6.

### If two fraction have unlike denominators then the LTD is the product of their denominations?

Answer: I assume you are talking about the least common denominator. If you multiply the denominators, you will get a common denominator. This will always work, if you need to add, subtract, or compare fractions. However, the common denominator you thus get will not always be the LEAST common denominator. Examples: * For denominators 7 and 11, the least common denominator is, indeed, the product (77). * For denominators 4 and 6, the product is…

### How do you find the sum of 5 over 12 and 9 over 6?

5/12 + 9/6 The least common multiple (LCM or common denominator) of 12 and 6 is 12 so bring both fractions to the same denominator: 5/12 + 18/12 Add the numerators, the denominator is the LCM: 23/12 Answer = 23/12 5/12 + 9/6 The least common multiple (LCM or common denominator) of 12 and 6 is 12 so bring both fractions to the same denominator: 5/12 + 18/12 Add the numerators, the denominator is the…
