Math

You have a Spanish club meeting every fourth day and a math club meeting every tenth day. When is the first time they will meet on the same day?

My Answer:
4 + 10=14 they would meet on the 14th day

Would that be the correct answer? I am confused.

  1. No.

    Today is Tuesday. Suppose the Spanish and math clubs both meet today.

    Four days from now, Saturday, the Spanish club will meet again.

    Ten days from now, Friday, the math club will meet again.

    Your method doesn't work, does it?

    You need to find the least common multiple of 4 and 10.

    4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32
    10, 20, 30, 40
