Prime Factorization:

14 = 2 * 7

18 = 2 * 3 * 3

LCM = 2 * 3^2 * 7 =126

Reduction through GCD:

LCM(a,b) = a * b / gcd(a,b)

GCD(14,18) = 2

LCM = 14 * 18 / 2

LCM = 252 / 2

LCM = 126

14 = 2 * 7

18 = 2 * 3 * 3

LCM = 2 * 3^2 * 7 =126

Reduction through GCD:

LCM(a,b) = a * b / gcd(a,b)

GCD(14,18) = 2

LCM = 14 * 18 / 2

LCM = 252 / 2

LCM = 126
