Patsy has cheerleading practice on every fourth school day. She wants to be in the school play, but they have practice on every sixth school day. If both started on September 5th, what would be the first date that she has to choose between cheerleading and play practice? Explain.

• Math -

LCM(4,6) = 12

so, on the 12th school day she will have to choose.

Not knowing which day of the week was Sept 5, it's hard to say the date of the 12th school day afterwards.

Especially if Labor Day is in there somewhere!

• Math -

Steve, you missed where you have to add 5 to 12.
