C Program to find LCM of two Numbers using Recursion

LCM: Least Common Multiple of two numbers is the number that is a common multiple of the both the numbers.

Below is a program to find LCM of two numbers using recursion.


int find_lcm(int, int);   // function prototype declaration

int main()
    printf("\n\n\t\tStudytonight - Best place to learn\n\n\n");
    int a, b, lcm;
    printf("\n\nEnter 2 integers to find LCM of:\n");
    scanf("%d%d", &a, &b);
    lcm = find_lcm(a,b);    // function call
    printf("\n\n LCM of %d and %d is: %d\n\n", a, b, lcm);
    printf("\n\n\t\t\tCoding is Fun !\n\n\n");
    return 0;

int find_lcm(int a, int b)  // function definition
        static variable is initialized only once 
        for each function call
    static int temp = 1;    
    if(temp%a == 0 && temp%b == 0)
        return temp;
        return temp;
