12 * 1 = 12    \(\leftarrow\)     not a multiple of 5

12 * 2 = 24    \(\leftarrow\)     not a multiple of 5

12 * 3 = 36    \(\leftarrow\)     not a multiple of 5

12 * 4 = 48    \(\leftarrow\)     not a multiple of 5

12 * 5 = 60    \(\leftarrow\)     this is a multiple of 5

 

So...the least common multiple of 5 and 12 is 60
