Two gears

Two gears with 13 and 7 teeth rotate locked into each other. How many turns does a big wheel have to make for both wheels to be in the starting position again?

Correct answer:

x =  7

Step-by-step explanation:

13 ...  prime number 7 ...  prime number LCM(13,7)=713=91  s=LCM(13,7)=91 x=s/13=91/13=7
