# Smallest Common Multiple (code not efficient enough)

Tell us what’s happening:
Please see smallest common multiple challenge.

My code passes all tests besides the final, which uses large numbers. I am guesing it doesnt pass because it is not efficient enough to process the large numbers.

Any help on how I could change this code to make it more efficient or otherwise finish this challenge would be much appreciated. Thanks.

``````
function smallestCommons(arr) {
let a = arr.sort((a,b) => a-b)
let b = [...Array(a+1).keys()]
let c = b.slice(b.indexOf(a))
// c is array of all numbers to be tested. a and b are just stepping stones to c
let d = []
// empty array that will end up holding every common multiple smaller than fin
let fin = c.reduce((a,b) => a*b)
// all numbers in c multiplied together
let least = function(nums, f) {
for (let i of nums) {
if (nums.every((j) => (f/i)%j == 0)) {
d.push(f/i)
if (Math.min(...d) != f) {
let f = Math.min(...d)
if (nums.every((j) => f%j == 0)){ return least(nums, f) }
}
}
}
return d[d.length-1] // once a value is reached that is not a common multiple, return the value before
}
return least(c, fin)
}

console.log(smallestCommons([2,10]));
