最低でも (saiteidemo) / 少なくても (sukunakutemo)
At least / At minimum
最低でも can be translated to “at least or at minimum” and the way to use 最低でも is basically 最低でも____ such as 最低でも1時間は必要 (It takes at least one hour.), 最低でも1,000円はかかる (It costs at least 1,000 yen.), 最低でも平均点は取りたい (I wanna get at least average score.) and etc. Additionally, 最低でも and 少なくとも are the same meaning, however, 最低でも is a little bit emphasized word than 少なくとも.
