## Least Common Multiple

Summary

The content provides an in-depth exploration of the Least Common Multiple (LCM), its calculation methods, significance in various mathematical contexts, and strategies for enhancing number sense and intuition in solving related problems.

- LCM is crucial for solving problems involving fractions, sets of different sizes, and is identical to the Least Common Denominator (LCD).
- The process of finding the LCM can be simplified by using the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) and the prime factorization of the numbers involved.
- Understanding and applying the concept of LCM is essential for efficient problem-solving in the GRE exam, especially in math sections.
- Developing number sense and intuition is emphasized as a key strategy for improving performance in math, beyond memorizing procedures.
- An exercise for building number sense involves daily practice with pairs of two-digit numbers to estimate their GCF and LCM before verifying with a detailed procedure.
