Two positive integers a and b can be written as a = x3y2 and b = xy3. x, y are prime numbers. Find LCM (a, b).
Given: a = x3y2 and b = xy3 where a and b are positive integers and x and y are prime numbers.
a = x3y2
`⇒ a = x × x xx x xx y xx y`
and b = xy3
`=> b = x xx y xx y xx y`
So, the LCM of a and b will be x3y3 .
