LCM of digits of a given number


Given a number n, find LCM of its digits.


Input : 397
Output : 63
LCM of 3, 9 and 7 is 63.

Input : 244
Output : 4
LCM of 2, 4 and 4 is 4.

We traverse the digits of number one by one below loop

digit = n mod 10;
n = n / 10;

While traversing digits, we keep track of current LCM and keep updating LCM by finding LCM of current digit with current LCM.

// CPP program to find LCM of digits of a number
using namespace std;

int digitLCM(int n)
    int lcm = 1;
    while (n > 0)
        lcm = boost::math::lcm(n%10, lcm);

        // If at any point LCM become 0.
        // return it
        if (lcm == 0)
            return 0;

        n = n/10;
    return lcm;

// driver code
int main()
    long n = 397;
    cout << digitLCM(n);
    return 0;
