LCM Calculator computes the LCM of two numbers i.e. 40 and 52 and gives the Least Common Multiple 520 the smallest integer that is divisible by both the numbers.

Least Common Multiple of 40 and 52 is 520

LCM(40, 52) = 520

**Ex:** number 1 - 1500 and number 2 - 20.

Check out the procedure to find the Least Common Multiple of 40 and 52 using the Prime Factorization Method. They are as follows

**Step 1:** Firstly, find the Prime Factorization of given numbers 40, 52

**Prime Factorization of 40 is as such**

2 | 40 |

2 | 20 |

2 | 10 |

5 | 5 |

1 |

Prime factors of 40 are 2,5. Prime factorization of **40** in exponent form is:

40 = 2^{3}×5^{1}

**Prime Factorization of 52 is as follows**

2 | 52 |

2 | 26 |

13 | 13 |

1 |

Prime factors of 52 are 2,13. Prime factorization of **52** in exponent form is:

52 = 2^{2}×13^{1}

**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 2^{3}×5^{1}×13^{1}= 520

Therefore, LCM of two numbers 40 and 52 is 520

LCM(40,52) = 520

Go through the simple and easy steps listed to know the Least Common Multiple of 40, 52 using the GCF Formula

**Step 1:** Find the Greatest Common Factor of 40, 52 initially.

Greatest Common Factor is the largest integer by which both the numbers can be divided. The GCF of 40, 52 is 4.

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(40,52)= 40*52/GCF(40, 52)

= 40*52/4

= 520

Thus, LCM(40,52) using the GCF Formula is 520
