Buses 4

intervals:
1st bus 40 min.
2nd bus 2h
3rd bud 20min

How long take them to meet - as soon as possible?

Result

h =  4 h

Solution:

40=235 120=2335 80=245 LCM(40,120,80)=2435=240  h=240/60=4 h40 = 2^3 \cdot 5 \ \\ 120 = 2^3 \cdot 3 \cdot 5 \ \\ 80 = 2^4 \cdot 5 \ \\ LCM(40, 120, 80) = 2^4 \cdot 3 \cdot 5 = 240 \ \\ \ \\ h = 240/60 = 4 \ \text{h}
