**drwls**, Friday, February 20, 2009 at 5:37pmThe period between the beginning of a "shine" is 6 seconds for #1, 8 seconds for #2 and 10 seconds for #3. the lowest common multiple of those numbers is 2*3*2*2*5 = 120 seconds. That is when they will come ON together for the next time.

When they come OFF together is more complicated. #1 goes off at t = 3, 9, 15, 21, 27, etc s. #2 goes off at 4, 12, 20, 28, 36.. s. One set of number is odd and the other even. The "off" times can never coincide.

Maybe another teacher will prove me wrong about this
