# LCM

LCM(number1 [,number2] [..])

Returns the least common multiple of two or more numbers.

 number1 The first number number2 (Optional) The second number.

 REMARKS
 * This function returns the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of all the numbers.* This function returns the smallest positive [[Multiple]] of all the numbers.* If any of the numbers are not whole numbers (or integers), then they are truncated.* If any of the arguments are less than zero (negative), then #NUM! is returned.* If any of the arguments are more than 2^53, then #NUM! is returned.* If any of the arguments are not numeric, then #VALUE! is returned.* If the least common multiple is more than 2^53, then #NUM! is returned.* This function can be used to add fractions with different denominators. (Example 12)* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.* You can use the GCD function to return the greatest common divisor of two or more numbers.* For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com* For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com
