2160 = 2*2*2*2*3*3*3*5

1344 = 2*2*2*2*2*2*3*7

1440 = 2*2*2*2*2*3*3*5

HCF = 2*2*2*2*3

= 24

2.

let their income be x

x/10 + x/3 + x/5 + 1320 = x

times 150 , the LCM

15x + 50x + 30x + 198000 = 150x

198000 = 55x

x = 3600

1344 = 1*1344 = 1*2*672 = 1*2*3*224 =

1*2*3*4*56 = 1*2*3*4*7*8.

1440 = 1*1440 = 1*2*720 = 1*2*3*240 =

1*2*3*4*60 = 1*2*3*4*5*12=1*2*3*4*5*6*2

2160 = 1*2160 = 1*2*1080 = 1*2*3*360 =

1*2*3*4*90 = 1*2*3*4*5*18=1*2*3*4*5*6*3

GCF = 4.

2. Income = $X.

(1/10+1/3+1/5)X + 1320 = X

(3/30+10/30*6/30)X + 1320 = x

19x/30 + 1320 = x

Multiply both sides by 30:

19x + 39,600 = 30x

-11x = -39,600

X = $3600
