The smallest positive integer that is divisible by two numbers. To find the LCM:
**Method 1**: list the prime factors of each number and multiply each factor by the greatest number of times it occurs in either number.
**Method 2**: list the multiples of a number and find the first one that is the same.

**Example for Method 1**: The LCM of 8 (2 × 2 × 2) and 14 (2 × 7) is **56 (2 × 2 × 2 × 7).**
**Example for Method 2**: **8**: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56. **14**: 14, 28, 42, 56. So the LCM is **56**.
