LCM(x1, x2, x3, ..., xn) |
specifies a numeric constant, variable, or expression that has an integer value.
Details |
The LCM (least common multiple) function returns the smallest multiple that is exactly divisible by every member of a set of numbers. For example, the least common multiple of 12 and 18 is 36.
If any of the arguments are missing, then the returned value is a missing value.
Examples |
The following example returns the smallest multiple that is exactly divisible by the integers 10 and 15.
data _null_; x=lcm(10,15); put x=; run;
SAS writes the following output to the log:
x=30
