To find the least common multiple (LCM) for each pair 3x^2y^6 and 4x^3y^2, we need to determine the highest power of each variable that appears in either expression.

For x, the highest power is x^3 in 4x^3y^2. For y, the highest power is y^6 in 3x^2y^6.

Therefore, the LCM for 3x^2y^6 and 4x^3y^2 is 4x^3y^6.
