We present lower bounds for the coefficients of Ehrhart polynomials of convex lattice polytopes in terms of their volume. We also introduce two formulas for calculating the Ehrhart series of a kind of a ”weak” free sum of two lattice polytopes and of integral dilates of a polytope. As an application of these formulas we show that Hibi’s lower bound on the coefficients of the Ehrhart series is not true for lattice polytopes without interior lattice points.
