2|_2,3__

2|__1 , 3_

3| 1, 1

So , the LCM is => 24

## _____________

When the denominators are same ; the numerators will also change.

So , what number when

multiplied by 8 gives 24?The number is

3; so we will multiply 3 with both the numerator and denominator .The same rule of the number which when

multiplied by 12 gives 24is followed with both the numerator and denominator.So , finally we have got 2 numbers with same denominators.
