wat is the lcm of -3\5 and 3\5???????
lol, apparently TPH thought you were at a higher level of math than you actually are.
i think what you meant to say is that you want the LCD, which is the same as the LCM of the denominators. In that case the answer would be 5. Since 5 is the smallest number that both denominators can divide into
I understand now.*
I assumed the reader was asking "lcm (3/5, -3/5) = ?"
But now I understand that he was asking what is the lowest common denominator to add those fractions.
*)One reason why I suspected that is because the user picked India as his home country. Since India is far superior to America in math I assumed it was a higher level question.
i figured. but going back to what you said, how does working in Q get you to that answer?
i never did a lot of stuff with LCM, LCD, and GCD myself in school just enough to do things like add fractions and such. or maybe i did, but i never started paying attention in class until i got to college
well, that's true*)One reason why I suspected that is because the user picked India as his home country. Since India is far superior to America in math I assumed it was a higher level question.

This is what I was thinking.
