Finding the LCD of a list of values is the same as finding the LCM of the denominators of those values.
1,t,1
Since 1,t,1 contain both numbers and variables, there are two steps to find the LCM. Find LCM for the numeric part 1,1,1 then find LCM for the variable part t1.
The LCM is the smallest positive number that all of the numbers divide into evenly.
1. List the prime factors of each number.
2. Multiply each factor the greatest number of times it occurs in either number.
The number 1 is not a prime number because it only has one positive factor, which is itself.
Not prime
The LCM of 1,1,1 is the result of multiplying all prime factors the greatest number of times they occur in either number.
1
The factor for t1 is t itself.
t1=t
t occurs 1 time.
The LCM of t1 is the result of multiplying all prime factors the greatest number of times they occur in either term.

t=5k±25k2-4⋅(3⋅(-3k))2⋅3
Multiply -3 by 3.
t=5k±25k2-4⋅(-9k)2⋅3
Multiply -9 by -4.
t=5k±25k2+36k2⋅3
Factor k out of 25k2+36k.
Tap for more steps…
Factor k out of 25k2.
t=5k±k(25k)+36k2⋅3
Factor k out of 36k.
t=5k±k(25k)+k⋅362⋅3
Factor k out of k(25k)+k⋅36.
t=5k±k(25k+36)2⋅3
t=5k±k(25k+36)2⋅3
t=5k±k(25k+36)2⋅3
Multiply 2 by 3.
t=5k±k(25k+36)6
t=5k±k(25k+36)6
The final answer is the combination of both solutions.
t=5k+k(25k+36)6
t=5k-k(25k+36)6
t=5k+k(25k+36)6
t=5k-k(25k+36)6
Solve for t 5k=3t-(3k)/t
