Imagine you and your friend both have a pack of gum. You have 3 pieces of gum and your friend has 4 pieces of gum. The LCM would be the smallest number of pieces of gum that you could split between you and your friend so that you each get the same number of pieces.

Multiples of 6: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, …

Multiples of 9: 9, 18, 27, 36, …
