An "A" train leaves a subway station every 13 minutes. An "E" train leaves evry 9 minutes. If both trains just left the station on parallel tracts, when will both leave the station together again?

After 117 minutes,

9 A trains will have left,

13 E trains will have left

and then the cycle starts over.

Trains run on tracks, not tracts.
