## Finding LCM of two numbers 28 and 42 using Prime Factorization Method

Check out the procedure to find the Least Common Multiple of 28 and 42 using the Prime Factorization Method. They are as follows

Step 1: Firstly, find the Prime Factorization of given numbers 28, 42

Prime Factorization of 28 is as such

 2 28 2 14 7 7 1

Prime factors of 28 are 2,7. Prime factorization of 28 in exponent form is:

28 = 22×71

Prime Factorization of 42 is as follows

 2 42 3 21 7 7 1

Prime factors of 42 are 2, 3,7. Prime factorization of 42 in exponent form is:

42 = 21×31×71

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 22×31×71= 84

Therefore, LCM of two numbers 28 and 42 is 84

### Finding LCM of two numbers 28 and 42 using GCF Formula

Go through the simple and easy steps listed to know the Least Common Multiple of 28, 42 using the GCF Formula

Step 1: Find the Greatest Common Factor of 28, 42 initially.

Greatest Common Factor is the largest integer by which both the numbers can be divided. The GCF of 28, 42 is 14.

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(28,42)= 28*42/GCF(28, 42)

= 28*42/14

= 84

Thus, LCM(28,42) using the GCF Formula is 84
