Find LCM of rational numbers

Given an array of rational numbers, the task is to find the LCM of these numbers.

Examples:

Input : vect[] = {2/7, 3/14, 5/3}
Output : 30/1

Input : vect[] = {3/14, 5/3}
Output : 15/1

Input : vect[] = {3/4, 3/2}
Output : 3/2



First find the lcm of all numerator of rational number then find the gcd of all the denominator of rational number then divide lcm of all numerator/ gcd of all the denominator this the lcm of rational number’s.

Formula:-

      LCM of all the numerator of Rational number's
lcm = -----------------------------------------------
      GCD of all the denominator of Rational number's
