Any multiple of 8 is a multiple of 4. Multiples of 8 are

8, 16,

Multiples of 6 include

6, 12, 18,

You can see that

One way to find the "least common multiple" of these numbers is to look at their factors.

4 = 2*2

6 = 2*3

8 = 2*2*2

Any number that is a multiple of all of these will have at least 3 factors of 2 and at least 1 factor of 3.

2*2*2*3 = 24

8, 16,

**24**, 32, 40,**48**, 56, ...Multiples of 6 include

**24**, 30, 36, 42,**48**, 54, ...You can see that

**multiples of 24**are on both lists, so are multiples of 4, 6, and 8.One way to find the "least common multiple" of these numbers is to look at their factors.
