    hints: 1. Question asks you to provide a counter example, so you need to show an example where the product is not equal to the LCM. No mathematical proof is required, but you need to explain how the example is contradicting the given statement. 2. the product IS the LCM when the two denominators are coprime (i.e. have no common factors). What happens when...
