 ## How to find the Least Common Multiple of 31 and 37?

On this page below, we'll use the Prime Factorisation, and the List of Multiples method to find out the LCM of 31 and 37.

Follow the steps below, and let's calculate the LCM of 31 and 37.

### Method 1 - Prime factorization

#### Step 1: Create a list of all the prime factors of the numbers 31 and 37:

##### Prime factors of 31

The prime factors of 31 are 31. Prime factorization of 31 in exponential form is:

31 = 311

##### Prime factors of 37

The prime factors of 37 are 37. Prime factorization of 37 in exponential form is:

37 = 371

311, 371

311x371=1147

#### Step 4: The result:

As seen on the calculation above, we have now obtained the LCM of 31 and 37.
