## How to find the LCM of 36 and 27

The least common multiple of 36 and 27 can be computed by using the greatest common factor aka gcf of 36 and 27. This is the easiest approach:

lcm (36,27) = $\frac{36 \times 27}{gcf(36,27)} = \frac{972}{9}$ = 108

Alternatively, the lcm of 36 and 27 can be found using the prime factorization of 36 and 27:

• The prime factorization of 36 is: 2 x 2 x 3 x 3
• The prime factorization of 27 is: 3 x 3 x 3
• Eliminate the duplicate factors of the two lists, then multiply them once with the remaining factors of the lists to get lcm(36,36) = 108

In any case, the easiest way to compute the lcm of two numbers like 36 and 27 is by using our calculator below. Note that it can also compute the lcm of more than two numbers, separated by a comma. For example, enter 36,27. Push the button only to start over.

## Use of LCM of 36 and 27

What is the least common multiple of 36 and 27 used for? Answer: It is helpful for adding and subtracting fractions like 1/36 and 1/27. Just multiply the dividends and divisors by 3 and 4, respectively, such that the divisors have the value of 108, the lcm of 36 and 27.

$\frac{1}{36} + \frac{1}{27} = \frac{3}{108} + \frac{4}{108} = \frac{7}{108}$. $\hspace{30px}\frac{1}{36} – \frac{1}{27} = \frac{3}{108} – \frac{4}{108} = \frac{-1}{108}$.

## Properties of LCM of 36 and 27

The most important properties of the lcm(36,27) are:

• Commutative property: lcm(36,27) = lcm(27,36)
• Associative property: lcm(36,27,n) = lcm(lcm(27,36),n) $\hspace{10px}n\neq 0 \hspace{3px}\epsilon\hspace{3px}\mathbb{Z}$

The associativity is particularly useful to get the lcm of three or more numbers; our calculator makes use of it.

To sum up, the lcm of 36 and 27 is 108. In common notation: lcm (36,27) = 108.
