Let's factorize the expressions:

x^2 + 7x =

x^2 =

↓

LCM of x^2 and x(x + 7) is

P.S. If two or more expressions contain the same factors with the same base, but different exponent (power) we have to choose the factor with the bigger exponent for LCM.

x^2 + 7x =

*x*(x + 7)x^2 =

*x** x↓

*x** x * (x + 7) =LCM of x^2 and x(x + 7) is

*x^2 (x + 7)*P.S. If two or more expressions contain the same factors with the same base, but different exponent (power) we have to choose the factor with the bigger exponent for LCM.
