Michael and mateo begin running around a circular track from the starting point at the same time. it takes Michael 48 seconds one lap around the track. it takes mateo 60 seconds to complete one lap around the track
how many minutes does it take before the two boys will meet at the starting point again?
how many laps will each boy have run by then?

1. LCM(48,60) = 240
so, they meet again in 480 seconds, or 8 minutes.

I guess you can figure out the rest, no?

6. The way he got the answer was to find the least common multiple for 48 seconds and 60 seconds which is 240 seconds then multiply 240 seconds x 2 because there are 2 boys (runners) which equals 480 seconds ÷ 60 sec (1 min) which is 8 mins. Hope this helps.
