## How-to: What is the LCM of 17, 23 and 29?

The below solved example with step by step work shows how to find what is the lcm of 17, 23 and 29 by using either prime factors method and special division method.

Solved example using prime factors method:
What is the LCM of 17, 23 and 29?

step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
Input parameters and values:
A = 17
B = 23
C = 29

What to be found:
find the lcm of 17, 23 and 29

step 2 Find the prime factors of 17, 23 and 29:
Prime factors of 17 = 17
Prime factors of 23 = 23
Prime factors of 29 = 29

step 3Identify the repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 17, 23 and 29:
Since there is no common factors between 17, 23 and 29, multiplying the given numbers directly provides the LCM of 17, 23 and 29.
= 17 x 23 x 29
= 11339
lcm(20 and 30) = 11339

Hence,
lcm of 17, 23 and 29 is 11339

Solved example using special division method:
This special division method is the easiest way to understand the entire calculation of what is the lcm of 17, 23 and 29.

step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
Input parameters and values:
Integers: 17, 23 and 29

What to be found:
lcm (17, 23, 29) = ?

step 2 Arrange the given integers in the horizontal form with space or comma separated format:
17, 23 and 29

step 3 Choose the divisor which divides each or most of the given integers (17, 23 and 29), divide each integers separately and write down the quotient in the next line right under the respective integers. Bring down the integer to the next line if any integer in 17, 23 and 29 is not divisible by the selected divisor; repeat the same process until all the integers are brought to 1 as like below:

 17 17 23 29 23 1 23 29 29 1 1 29 1 1 1
