The denominators are
3, which is prime = 31
4, which has prime factors 2*2 = 22
32, which has prime factors 2*2*2*2*2 = 25
9, which has prime factors 3*3 = 32

The lowest common denominator will have each of the different prime factors at its greatest multiplicity. LCD = 25*32 = 32*9 = 288

1/3 = 96/288
3/4 = 216/288
5/32 = 45/288
8/9 = 256/288
