**MathMate**, Thursday, April 7, 2011 at 10:51amIf you have not learned about LCM before, then you can make a list:

9:00 11 13 15 17 19**21**23:00

9:00 12 15 18**21**0:00

9:00 13 17**21**01:00

21:00 = 9:00 pm is the next time all three bells will ring together.

If you are familiar with LCM, then the intervals are 2,3 and 4 hours.

The LCM of 2, 3 is 6 hours,

the LCM of 3,4 is 12,

the LCM of 2,4 is 4.

So take the longest period of 12 hours and add to 9:00am to get 9:00pm.
