Parachutists

Parachutists during freefall firstly held in groups of 4, then of 6, then 9, 12 and finally of 18 members. How many parachutists jump at least should be, if at each group must all be involved.

Correct result:

n =  36

Solution:

4=22 6=23 9=32 12=223 18=232 LCM(4,6,9,12,18)=2232=36  n=LCM(4,6,9,12,18)=364=2^2 \ \\ 6=2 \cdot 3 \ \\ 9=3^2 \ \\ 12=2^2 \cdot 3 \ \\ 18=2 \cdot 3^2 \ \\ LCM(4, 6, 9, 12, 18)=2^2 \cdot 3^2=36 \ \\ \ \\ n=LCM(4,6,9,12,18)=36



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
