Hi All,

I am trying to make a programming code to find the LCM between the following
numbers.
I DO NOT want to use Prime Factorization but wish to setup some kind of
table multiplication process until required results are found.

Here are the correct results shown using LCM function

LCM[Rationalize[1.4137, 0], 
   Rationalize[2.5, 0], 5, 
   Rationalize[12.5, 0]]
353425
N[%/{Rationalize[1.4137, 0], 
       Rationalize[2.5, 0], 5, 
       Rationalize[12.5, 0]}]
{250000., 141370., 70685., 28274.}

Any help & advice gratefully received.
Many thanks for your help & attention.

Best Regards - Lea Rebanks...
