Answer

False

Work Step by Step

The least common multiple of two numbers is the smallest number into which the original numbers divide. Therefore, we can look at a list of multiples of each number to find the LCM. 5- 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 6- 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36 We can see that 30 is the smallest number into which both 5 and 6 divide. Therefore, 25 is not the LCM of 6 and 5.
