    1764 is the lcm of 28, 49 and 63.

    where,
    28 is a positive integer,
    49 is a positive integer,
    1764 is the lcm of 28, 49 and 63,
    {7} in {2 x 2 x 7, 7 x 7, 3 x 3 x 7} is the most repeated factors of 28, 49 and 63,
    {2, 2, 7, 3, 3} in {2 x 2 x 7, 7 x 7, 3 x 3 x 7} are the the other remaining factors of 28, 49 and 63.

    Use in Mathematics: LCM of 28, 49 and 63
    The below are some of the mathematical applications where lcm of 28, 49 and 63 can be used:

    1. to find the least number which is exactly divisible by 28, 49 and 63.
    2. to find the common denominators for the fractions having 28, 49 and 63 as denominators in the unlike fractions addition or subtraction.
    Use in Real-world Problems: 28, 49 and 63 lcm
    In the context of lcm real world problems, the lcm of 28, 49 and 63 helps to find the exact time when three similar and recurring with different time schedule happens together at the same time. For example, the real world problems involve lcm in situations to find at what time all the bells A, B and C toll together, if bell A tolls at 28 seconds, B tolls at 49 seconds and C tolls at 63 seconds repeatedly. The answer is that all bells A, B and C toll together at 1764 seconds for the first time, at 3528 seconds for the second time, at 5292 seconds for the third time and so on.

    Important Notes: 28, 49 and 63 lcm
    The below are the important notes to be remembered while solving the lcm of 28, 49 and 63:
    1. The repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 28, 49 and 63 should be multiplied to find the least common multiple of 28, 49 and 63, when solving lcm by using prime factors method.
    2. The results of lcm of 28, 49 and 63 is identical even if we change the order of given numbers in the lcm calculation, it means the order of given numbers in the lcm calculation doesn't affect the results.

    How-to: What is the LCM of 28, 49 and 63?

    The below solved example with step by step work shows how to find what is the lcm of 28, 49 and 63 by using either prime factors method and special division method.

    Solved example using prime factors method:
    What is the LCM of 28, 49 and 63?

    step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
    Input parameters and values:
    A = 28
    B = 49
    C = 63

    What to be found:
    find the lcm of 28, 49 and 63

    step 2 Find the prime factors of 28, 49 and 63:
    Prime factors of 28 = 2 x 2 x 7
    Prime factors of 49 = 7 x 7
    Prime factors of 63 = 3 x 3 x 7

    step 3 Identify the repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 28, 49 and 63:
    {7} is the most repeated factor and {2, 2, 7, 3, 3} are the non-repeated factors of 28, 49 and 63.

    step 4 Find the product of repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 28, 49 and 63:
    = 7 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 3 x 3
    = 1764
    lcm(20 and 30) = 1764

    Hence,
    lcm of 28, 49 and 63 is 1764


    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 28, 49 and 63.

    step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
    Input parameters and values:
    Integers: 28, 49 and 63

    What to be found:
    lcm (28, 49, 63) = ?

    step 2 Arrange the given integers in the horizontal form with space or comma separated format:
    28, 49 and 63

    step 3 Choose the divisor which divides each or most of the given integers (28, 49 and 63), 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 28, 49 and 63 is not divisible by the selected divisor; repeat the same process until all the integers are brought to 1 as like below:

    2284963
    2144963
    374963
    374921
    77497
    7171
    111

    step 4 Multiply the divisors to find the lcm of 28, 49 and 63:
    = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7
    = 1764
    LCM(28, 49, 63) = 1764

    The least common multiple for three numbers 28, 49 and 63 is 1764
