Program to find LCM of two numbers in Python

The python program to find lcm of two numbers is as follows:

 

# Owner : TutorialsInhand Author : Devjeet Roy

n1 = int(input("Enter the first number: "))
n2 = int(input("Enter the second number: "))

if n1 > n2:
    greater = n1
else:
    greater = n2

while(True):
    if(greater % n1 == 0 and greater % n2 == 0):
        lcm = greater
        break
    greater += 1

print("The LCM is:",lcm)

The output of program to find lcm of two numbers in python using while loop is as follows:

 

PS C:\Users\DEVJEET\Desktop\tutorialsInHand> python code.py
Enter the first number: 3
Enter the second number: 4
The LCM is: 12

Few important points about this program:

1. The LCM i.e. Lowest Common Multiple is the smallest number which can be divided by both the numbers.

2. We take the greater number, find whether it can be divided by itself and the other number. If so, then that number is the LCM, else we increment the number to find the number.
