    Least common multiple - how to prove its associaticity

    Hi, I'm trying to show, that function Least common multiple(LST) is associative.
    LST(a,LST(b,c)) = LST(LST(a,b),c)
    Can you please help me? I know that LST is associative, I just don't know how to prove it...

    And they say that faith and science are incompatible

    You should start with the definition of LST and known facts about it. Can you list them?
