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

 

C++




// CPP program to find LCM of given array
#include <bits/stdc++.h>

// get lcm of two numbers
int LCM(int a, int b)
{
    return (a * b) / (__gcd(a, b));

// Finds LCM of numerators
int lcmOfNumerator(vector<pair<int, int> > vect)
{
    // calculate the lcm of all numerators
    int lcm = vect[0].first;
    for (int i = 1; i < vect.size(); i++)
        lcm = LCM(vect[i].first, lcm);
 
    // return all numerator lcm
    return lcm;
}
 
// Get GCD of all the denominators
int gcdOfDemoninators(vector<pair<int, int> > vect)
{
    // calculate the gcd of all the denominators
    int gcd = vect[0].second;
    for (int i = 1; i < vect.size(); i++)
        gcd = __gcd(vect[i].second, gcd);
 
    // return all denominator gcd
    return gcd;
}
 
// find lcm of all the rational number

{
    // return the LCM of all numerator/ GCD of all
    // denominator
