LCMsThe Lowest Common Multiple (LCM) is the smallest positive number that is a multiple of two or more numbers.

For example the LCM of 4 and 6 is 12 because

Multiples of 4 are 4, 8, 12, 16, 20….

Multiples of 6 are 6, 12, 18, 24…

12 is the first number in both lists.

Hopefully you already know how to change a fraction to a decimal.

For instance ²⁄³ =2 ÷ 3= 0.6666… This is a recurring decimal. But changing a recurring decimal back to a fraction is a little more complicated.

UK maths teacher have produced a great video on this.
