Lowest common divisor
The lowest common divisor of any numbers is always 1, making it a useless term, often mistakenly used when one actually wishes to refer to either:
- the least common multiple of a set of numbers, or in particular, the lowest common denominator of a set of vulgar fractions.
- the greatest common divisor, which is the largest integer that divides all the numbers in a set of integers.
