To find the least common multiple (LCM) for y^3-y^2 and y^4-y^2, we need to factorize both expressions.

For y^3-y^2, we can factor out y^2: y^3-y^2 = y^2(y-1).

For y^4-y^2, we can factor out y^2 as well: y^4-y^2 = y^2(y^2-1).

Now, we can see that both expressions have a common factor of y^2.

To find the LCM, we take the product of the highest powers of all the factors involved. In this case, the LCM is y^2(y-1)(y^2-1).
