    what is the lcm of 60, 85 and 90?
    lcm (60   85   90) = (?)
    60 => 2 x 2 x 3 x 5
    85 => 5 x 17
    90 => 2 x 3 x 3 x 5

    = 2 x 3 x 5 x 2 x 17 x 3
    = 3060
    lcm (60, 85 and 90) = 3060
    3060 is the lcm of 60, 85 and 90.

    where,
    60 is a positive integer,
    85 is a positive integer,
    3060 is the lcm of 60, 85 and 90,
    {2, 3, 5} in {2 x 2 x 3 x 5, 5 x 17, 2 x 3 x 3 x 5} are the most repeated factors of 60, 85 and 90,
    {2, 17, 3} in {2 x 2 x 3 x 5, 5 x 17, 2 x 3 x 3 x 5} are the the other remaining factors of 60, 85 and 90.

    Use in Mathematics: LCM of 60, 85 and 90
    The below are some of the mathematical applications where lcm of 60, 85 and 90 can be used:

    1. to find the least number which is exactly divisible by 60, 85 and 90.
    2. to find the common denominators for the fractions having 60, 85 and 90 as denominators in the unlike fractions addition or subtraction.
    Use in Real-world Problems: 60, 85 and 90 lcm
    In the context of lcm real world problems, the lcm of 60, 85 and 90 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 60 seconds, B tolls at 85 seconds and C tolls at 90 seconds repeatedly. The answer is that all bells A, B and C toll together at 3060 seconds for the first time, at 6120 seconds for the second time, at 9180 seconds for the third time and so on.

    Important Notes: 60, 85 and 90 lcm
    The below are the important notes to be remembered while solving the lcm of 60, 85 and 90:
    1. The repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 60, 85 and 90 should be multiplied to find the least common multiple of 60, 85 and 90, when solving lcm by using prime factors method.
    2. The results of lcm of 60, 85 and 90 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 60, 85 and 90?

    The below solved example with step by step work shows how to find what is the lcm of 60, 85 and 90 by using either prime factors method and special division method.

    Solved example using prime factors method:
    What is the LCM of 60, 85 and 90?

    step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
    Input parameters and values:
    A = 60
    B = 85
    C = 90

    What to be found:
    find the lcm of 60, 85 and 90

    step 2 Find the prime factors of 60, 85 and 90:
    Prime factors of 60 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5
    Prime factors of 85 = 5 x 17
    Prime factors of 90 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5

    step 3 Identify the repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 60, 85 and 90:
    {2, 3, 5} are the most repeated factors and {2, 17, 3} are the non-repeated factors of 60, 85 and 90.

    step 4 Find the product of repeated and non-repeated prime factors of 60, 85 and 90:
    = 2 x 3 x 5 x 2 x 17 x 3
    = 3060
    lcm(20 and 30) = 3060

    Hence,
    lcm of 60, 85 and 90 is 3060


    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 60, 85 and 90.

    step 1 Address the input parameters, values and observe what to be found:
    Input parameters and values:
    Integers: 60, 85 and 90

    What to be found:
    lcm (60, 85, 90) = ?

    step 2 Arrange the given integers in the horizontal form with space or comma separated format:
    60, 85 and 90

    step 3 Choose the divisor which divides each or most of the given integers (60, 85 and 90), 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 60, 85 and 90 is not divisible by the selected divisor; repeat the same process until all the integers are brought to 1 as like below:

    2608590
    2308545
    3158545
    358515
    55855
    171171
    111

    step 4 Multiply the divisors to find the lcm of 60, 85 and 90:
    = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 17
    = 3060
    LCM(60, 85, 90) = 3060

    The least common multiple for three numbers 60, 85 and 90 is 3060
