LCM of Two Numbers

n the following example, we will find the LCM of the given two numbers (45, 90).

Example

C Compiler
#include <stdio.h> int main() { int num1 = 45; int num2 = 90; int max; max = (num1 > num2) ? num1 : num2; // Always true while(1) { if((max % num1 == 0) && (max % num2 == 0)) { printf("LCM of %d and %d: %d", num1, num2, max); break; } ++max; } return 0; }

LCM of any Two Given Numbers

In the following example, we will find the LCM of any two given numbers.

Example

C Compiler
#include <stdio.h> int main() { int num1, num2, max; printf("Enter positive (int) num1 = "); scanf("%d", &num1); printf("Enter positive (int) num2 = "); scanf("%d", &num2); max = (num1 > num2) ? num1 : num2; // Always true while(1) { if((max % num1 == 0) && (max % num2 == 0)) { printf("\nLCM of %d and %d: %d", num1, num2, max); break; } ++max; } return 0; }
