the boys of a school can be arranged in 12,15. and 18 equal rows and also into a a solid square.What is the least number of boys the school can have?

  • maths - ,

    12 = 2^2 * 3
    15 = 3 * 5
    18 = 2 * 3^2

    LCM is 2^2 * 3^2 * 5 = 180

    but, we want a perfect square, so we need an extra factor of 5, so

    (2*3*5)^2 = 900

    900 = 12 * 75
    900 = 15 * 60
    900 = 18 * 50

    900 = 30^2

  • maths - ,

    Find the LCM of 12,15 and 18. Then multiply the LCM the minimum number to make it perfect square, 180 x 5 = 900
    find the square root of 900, which is 30
