From the rest of the cloth tailor could cut off either 3 m in men's suits without vest or 3.6 m with vest.

What shortest possible length could the rest of the cloth have?

How many suits
a) without a vest
b) with vest could make the tailor from the rest of the fabric wear?

Correct answer:

x =  18 m
y =  6
z =  5

Step-by-step explanation:

a=3 10=30 dm b=3.6 10=36 dm 30=235 36=2232 LCM(30,36)=22325=180  x=LCM(a,b)/10=LCM(30,36)/10=18 m
y=10 x/a=10 18/30=6
z=10 x/b=10 18/36=5
