Paving - joints

We are paving with rectangular pavement 18 cm × 24 cm was placed side by side in height in a row and in the second row in width etc. How many times will the joints meet at a distance 10 m?

Result

n =  13

Solution:

a=18 cm b=24 cm l=10 m=10 100 cm=1000 cm  18=232 24=233 LCM(18,24)=2332=72  x=LCM(a,b)=LCM(18,24)=72 cm  n1=l/x=1000/72125913.8889 n=n1=13.8889=13a=18 \ \text{cm} \ \\ b=24 \ \text{cm} \ \\ l=10 \ m=10 \cdot \ 100 \ cm=1000 \ cm \ \\ \ \\ 18=2 \cdot 3^2 \ \\ 24=2^3 \cdot 3 \ \\ LCM(18, 24)=2^3 \cdot 3^2=72 \ \\ \ \\ x=LCM(a,b)=LCM(18,24)=72 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ n_{1}=l/x=1000/72 \doteq \dfrac{ 125 }{ 9 } \doteq 13.8889 \ \\ n=\lfloor n_{1} \rfloor=\lfloor 13.8889 \rfloor=13



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!
