Let’s take an example What is the LCM of 24 and 32?

First, we factor both numbers into their primes.

The prime factorization of 24 is
24 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3

The prime factorization of 32 is
32 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

Next, we identify any shared primes.

With 24 and 32, 2 x 2 x 2 is a shared prime number.

Then, we take the shared prime and multiply it with all of the other prime factors.

(2 x 2 x 2)  x 3 x  2 x 2

The red number 2 x 2 x 2 is the shared prime factor.
The blue numbers are the other prime factors.

Hence we get the LCM of 32 and 24 is 96.
