The Least Common Multiple (LCM) is a mathematical term used to identify the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of two or more positive integers. In Google Sheets, the LCM can be found using the function =LCM(x,y) where x and y are the two positive integers you are looking for the LCM of. The LCM will return the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of both x and y. For example, if you wanted to find the LCM of the numbers 6 and 8, the function would return the number 24.

The syntax of LCM in Google Sheets is as follows:

=LCM(number1,number2)

This function will calculate the least common multiple of the two numbers provided.

To use LCM in Google Sheets, you can use the =lcm() function. For example, if you have the numbers 9 and 12, you can use the function to find the LCM, which is 36.

LCM should not be used when trying to calculate the number of days between two dates because it does not take into account leap years.

LCM, or "least common multiple," is a formula used to find the smallest number that is a multiple of two or more other numbers. There are a few similar formulae in Google Sheets that can be used to solve the same problem. The "GCD" or "greatest common divisor" formula finds the largest number that is a divisor of two or more other numbers. The "HCF" or "highest common factor" formula finds the largest number that is a factor of two or more other numbers. The "MOD" or "modulus" formula finds the remainder after dividing one number by another.
