In this article we will learn about LCM of 8 and 12. As both numbers are composite numbers and we will find it with two ways. One way is to find all multiples of both numbers and then find common ones. Lowest common number will be LCM of both numbers.

## LCM of 8 and 12 – Solution 1

We will find individual multiples first:

Multiples of 8 are: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 72, 80, 88, 96…..

Multiples of 12 are: 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96…..

Common Multiples are: 24, 48 and 96

As 24 is lowest in all common multiples so it will be answer

**LCM of 8 and 12 is 24**
