Linguistic problem :-). Should we say "greatest" instead of "lowest"? Granted that the greatest common denominator is not "greatest" in any other way, but it is lower or equal than any of the things we consider. The real "lowest" common denominator might be very close to nothing, might it not?
For any two natural numbers, the lowest common denominator is
GCD = greatest common divisor LCD = lowest common denominator
