## Finding LCM of two numbers 16 and 24 using Prime Factorization Method

Check out the procedure to find the Least Common Multiple of 16 and 24 using the Prime Factorization Method. They are as follows

Step 1: Firstly, find the Prime Factorization of given numbers 16, 24

Prime Factorization of 16 is as such

 2 16 2 8 2 4 2 2 1

Prime factors of 16 are 2. Prime factorization of 16 in exponent form is:

16 = 24

Prime Factorization of 24 is as follows

 2 24 2 12 2 6 3 3 1

Prime factors of 24 are 2,3. Prime factorization of 24 in exponent form is:

24 = 23×31

Step 2: Multiply together each of the Prime Numbers with the highest power to obtain the Least Common Multiple

On doing so, you will get the resultant equation as 24×31= 48

Therefore, LCM of two numbers 16 and 24 is 48

LCM(16,24) = 48

### Finding LCM of two numbers 16 and 24 using GCF Formula

Go through the simple and easy steps listed to know the Least Common Multiple of 16, 24 using the GCF Formula

Step 1: Find the Greatest Common Factor of 16, 24 initially.

Greatest Common Factor is the largest integer by which both the numbers can be divided. The GCF of 16, 24 is 8.

Simply use the GCF obtained in the formula to find the Least Common Multiple i.e. LCM(a,b) =a*b/GCF(a,b)

Substitute the inputs in the formula and you will get as under

LCM(16,24)= 16*24/GCF(16, 24)

= 16*24/8

= 48

Thus, LCM(16,24) using the GCF Formula is 48
