# Function to calculate the least common multiple of two numbers in JavaScript

The least common multiple, (LCM) of two integers a and b, is the smallest positive integer that is divisible by both a and b.

**For example −**

LCM of 4 and 6 is 12 because 12 is the smallest number that is exactly divisible by both 4 and 6.

We are required to write a JavaScript function that takes in two numbers, computes and returns the LCM of those numbers.

## Example

Following is the code −

const num1 = 4; const num2 = 6; const findLCM = (num1, num2) => { let hcf; for (let i = 1; i <= num1 && i <= num2; i++) { if( num1 % i == 0 && num2 % i == 0) { hcf = i; }; }; let lcm = (num1 * num2) / hcf; return lcm; }; console.log(findLCM(num1, num2));

## Output

Following is the output on console −

12
