As below

#### Explanation:

LCD stands for least common denominator and LCM stands for least common multiple.

The least common multiple is the smallest number that is divisible by all of the numbers in a set.

The least common denominator is used when adding fractions so that you can add fractions with different denominators.

Since x is finding place in both terms 2, 3, it is accounted once while arriving at the LCD or LCM
