# Least Common Multiple in Python

The Least Common Multiple (LCM) is also referred to as the Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) and Least Common Divisor (LCD). For two integers a and b, denoted LCM(a,b), the LCM is the smallest positive integer that is evenly divisible by both a and b. For example, LCM(2,3) = 6 and LCM(6,10) = 30.

The LCM of two or more numbers is the smallest number that is evenly divisible by all numbers in the set.

### How to Find the LCM in Python

def lcm(x, y):
if x > y:
greater = x
else:
greater = y
while(True):
if ((greater % x == 0) and (greater % y == 0)):
lcm = greater
break
greater += 1
return lcm

### Example

number_1

number_2

f"The Least Common Multiple of {number_1} and {number_2} is is {lcm(int(number_1), int(number_2))}"
