Calculator: calculate the least common multiple, lcm

Calculate the least common multiple of the numbers, LCM:

Method 1: Run the prime factorization of the numbers - then multiply all the prime factors of the numbers, taken by the largest exponents.

Method 2: The Euclidean algorithm:
lcm (a; b) = (a × b) / gcf (a; b)

Method 3: The divisibility of the numbers.
