  • math -

    least common multiple of
    5
    2*3
    3
    is
    5*2*3 = 30
    so use
    2/5 = 12/30 (top and bottom by 6)
    1/6 = 5/30 (top and bottom by 5)
    1/3 = 10/30 (top and bottom by 10)
    now put them in order :)

    damon, how did you come up with the number 5 as least common multiple 1/6,1/3,2/5
