## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to help students practice finding the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of pairs of numbers. It presents four problems where students are asked to determine the LCM of two given numbers by likely using prime factorization, as indicated by the factor trees provided for each pair. The worksheet includes spaces for students to write the prime factors of each number and the final LCM. The design suggests that the worksheet is intended for printing, allowing students to write their answers directly on the paper.

The worksheet is aiming to teach students the concept of the Least Common Multiple and how to calculate it for different pairs of numbers. It encourages the development of factorization skills, particularly prime factorization, which is a fundamental aspect of number theory in mathematics. By completing this worksheet, students will learn how to systematically find the LCM, an important skill that is applicable in various areas of mathematics, including solving fraction problems and finding common denominators. The worksheet also aids in reinforcing the understanding of multiplication and division relationships between numbers.
