Sorry...I got distracted and didn't see the word "denomkinators"...we have

6/8

4/32

If we don't want to reduce the fractions, the LCM can be found thusly

8 = 2^3

32 = 2^5

We look at the like bases = 2 and take the one with the highest exponent

So

LCM = 2^5 = 32

NO I WROTE THE PROBLEM WRONG. I forgot to write denominators. I corrected it. You did both problems right! It was my Fault.
