If 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.
