The Least Common Denominator Calculator is a free online tool that displays the LCM of the denominators. BYJU’S online least common denominator calculator tool makes calculations faster and easier where the LCM for the denominators of the two fractions is displayed in a fraction of seconds.
How to Use the Least Common Denominator Calculator?
The procedure to use the least common denominator calculator is as follows:
Step 1: Enter the two fractional values in the respective input fields
Step 2: Click the button “Calculate LCD” to get the output
Step 3: The result will be displayed in the LCD output field
A fraction is a number that is expressed as “a/b”. A fraction is considered as a part of the whole. It is defined as the ratio between two integers separated by a slash (/) symbol. The upper part of a fraction is called the numerator, and the lower part of a fraction is called the denominator. For the given two fractions, the calculator will display the Least Common Denominator (LCD), which is the smallest for all the common denominators.
The standard form of the Fraction is given below:
Fraction = Numerator / Denominator
