## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a structured activity designed to help students find the Least Common Multiple (LCM) of pairs of numbers. Each question presents a pair of numbers and requires the student to list their multiples, identify the common multiples, and then determine the LCM. The worksheet includes six problems, with the first problem partially worked out as an example to guide students on how to proceed with the rest. The format is clear and organized, encouraging students to work methodically through each step of the process.

The worksheet is teaching students to understand and identify multiples of numbers, recognize which are common to two numbers, and then determine the smallest of these common multiples, which is the LCM. It is reinforcing number sense, particularly in understanding how multiplication tables can be used to find common multiples. The exercise also encourages pattern recognition and the application of multiplication skills. Additionally, understanding how to find the LCM is foundational for various mathematical operations, including adding and subtracting fractions with different denominators.
