Litre, l, L A litre is a way to measure how much liquid something can hold. It’s like a big bottle size. We write it as “L” or “l”. When we have just a little bit of liquid, we use millilitres (mL). One litre is equal to 1000 mililitres. It’s like having 1000 tiny drops […]

## Less, less than

Less, less than It represents a connection between two quantities, indicating that one is inferior to, beneath, or smaller than the other. The symbol for this relationship is “<“, enabling comparisons of numerical, physical, and quantitative attributes like numbers, masses, heights, and magnitudes. Try this game to practice less than (<) and also greater than […]

## Least common multiple

Least common multiple The “least common multiple” (LCM) refers to the smallest positive integer that is a multiple of two or more given numbers. In simpler terms, it’s the smallest number that all the given numbers can divide evenly into. Here are some examples of finding the least common multiple (LCM): Example 1: LCM of […]

## Least common denominator

Least common denominator The least common denominator (LCD) is a fundamental concept in working with fractions. It refers to the smallest possible number that can be used as the denominator for all the fractions in a given set, allowing for easy comparison, addition, subtraction, and other operations. Why it’s important: Makes comparing and manipulating fractions […]

## Laws of addition

Laws of addition The term “laws of addition” usually refers to three properties that hold true for all real numbers when performing addition: Commutative Property: This law states that the order in which you add numbers doesn’t affect the sum. In simpler terms, it doesn’t matter whether you add A + B or B + […]

## Law of associativity

Law of associativity The law of associativity is a mathematical property that applies to two operations: addition and multiplication. This property indicates that, when there are three or more numbers in these operations, the result does not depend on the way the terms are grouped. In other words, the order in which numbers are added […]

## Length

Length The length of an object is its most extended dimension, a measurement of its longest side. For example, the length of a dog would be from its head to its tail. In the context of height measurement in children, the length refers to the vertical measurement from the base to the top of the […]

## Legs of a right-angled triangle

Legs of a right-angled triangle The legs of a right triangle are the two sides that intersect to determine the right angle. The remaining side is called the hypotenuse. Sometimes it is necessary to solve a right triangle to determine the length of one or both of the legs. […]
