Step 1
Use ' factorization on both numbers (' numbers that when all multiplied together equal the number) 36:
$2×2×3×3$
54:
$2×3×3×3$
Now if you line these factors up, "combine" them, then multiply it out, you'll get the least common multiple.
$2×2×3×3×◻$
$2×◻×3×3×3$
combined becomes
$2×2×3×3×3=108$
