    we are looking for the least common multiple. the lowest number that has both 6 and 7 as factors is 42 (the answer to life the universe and everything)

    24 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 3 36 = 2 * 2 * 3 * 3 Circle numbers they have in common... Put a circle around the 2's and the next 2's and the last 3's .. your lcm is 2 * 2 * 3 (the circled ones) * 2 * 3 the leftover ones. 72

    Basically if you count by each number 24,48,72,96,120 etc. ( I am counting by 24's) 36,72,108,144,180, etc. (I am counting by 36's) What is the first number they both have.... 72

    Hmm.... I have to let it soak in Lol i get it so all you really have to do is count each number like 24,48... etc and wait until the numbers have the same answer? But whats with the 2's and stuff like that lol

    You can always do the count thing.... you don't have to do the other if you don't want to. it is just quicker.
