Find the LCM of:
96 and 120


Given: 96 and 120

To find: Here we have to find the LCM of 96 and 120.

Solution:

Using prime factorization method:

Prime factorization of 96 = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 3 = 25 $\times$ 31 

Prime factorization of 120 = 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 2 $\times$ 3 $\times$ 5 = 23 $\times$ 31 $\times$ 51 

Highest power of each prime number:

25, 31, 51 

Multiplying these values together:

LCM = 25 $\times$ 31 $\times$ 51 

LCM(96, 120) = 480



So, LCM of 96 and 120 is 480.
