    # Find the smallest number which is exactly divisible by 22 and 54

 Solution: We will be using the concept of LCM(Least Common Multiple) to solve this. We know that the smallest 4-digit number is 1000. Hence,the LCM of 18, 24 and 32 is calculated as shown below, Therefore, LCM of 18, 24 and 32 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 = 288 Thus, we have 288 as the smallest number, which is exactly divisible by 18, 24, and 32. Since it's not a 4-digit number, we need to find the multiple of 288, close to 1000. Here we have 136 as the remainder. Therefore, we need to subtract 136 and add 288 to make the smallest 4 digit number exactly divisible by18, 24, and 32. So, the multiple of 288 just above 1000 is: 1000 – 136 + 288 = 1152. Hence, the smallest 4-digit number which is divisible by 18, 24, and 32 is 1152. You can also use the LCM Calculator to solve this.

Video transcript "Welcome to lido homework. My name is leonie Rolla and in today's Q&A video. We are going to solve a word problem. So let us repeat the question together. What is the smallest number which when divided by 24 36 and 54 gives a remainder of 5 each time. So as you can see that in the question, we are supposed to find s smallest number and that smallest number should be common right foot. Before 36 and 54 in what way says in such a way that whenever we divide that number by 24 we divide that number by 36 and we divide that number by 50 for we should get a remainder of 5 each time. So let us think about it, right? How can we do this? So before I start finding that number for who's the remainder after dividing by 24 36 54 we get the remainder as 5 let us And a number that is divisible by 24 by 36 by 54 right? In fact, let us find the least common number that is or least common multiple of 24 36 and 54. So right now what I'm going to do is I'm going to find the LCM of 24 36 and 54. Let us see how we can do that. So 24 the prime factorization of 24 is as follows 212 size twenty four to six Squeals to these ice 6 similarly for 36 it is going to be to 80s is thirty six to nine size 1833 size 9 similarly for 54 2 to the 4 to 7 of 14 three nines ice 27 3 3 0 is 9 therefore 24 can be written as 2 into 2 into 2 into 3. Similarly 36 can be written as 2 into 2 2 into 3 into 3 and few to 4 can be written as 2 into 3 into 3 into 3, right? Let us first find what are the comments here? So we have two two two common and we have three three three common and it has we have three and three common in the second number and the first and second number. We have two common. Therefore. The LCM e is 2/3 This to this tree and the leftovers in the first case that is two in the second case the third case that is three, right? So let us try to multiply this and see how much we will get to these I-66 to size 12 12 into 3 is 36 their son into here, right? So till here it is 36 and 2 into 3 is 6 now, let us see how we can find the value of 36 into 6. So 6 is 6 3 9 6 3 is 18 216 there for two and six is the least common multiple for 24 36 and 54. But the question is not asking us to find the least common multiple. In fact, the question is asking us to find the smallest number the least number which when divided by 24 36 and 54 which will give me five. Now if I divide 2 and 6 by 24 I'm going to get the remainder is 0 similarly if I divide 2 and 6 by 36 I'm going to get the remainder is 0 and also if I divide 216 by 51, I'm going to get the remainder as 0 right. So now what am I supposed to do so that I'll get the remainder as five. My load sticks tells me that I just need to add 5 to 216 which will give me 2 to 1 therefore if I divide 2 to 1 by 24, I'll get the remainder as five. Strangest chicken legs two to one. Let us try to divide it by 24 so we can know that 24 how many times will give me 2 to 1 any idea there is none, right? So let us find just next to that let us find the multiple of 20 for this next 2 to 21 and it will give me it might be to the 6 from here. Also. I can find it very easily to the for photos of eight a tree size 24. They did you guess so if I divide. Let's say Let's Take by 9:00. Okay, 9:00 for size 36 399 to jst in 216 Creek. So if I multiply 24 into 9, I will get it as 216 and I'm getting the remainder is 5 isn't it similarly when I divide 2 to 1 by 36 and when I divide 54 by 3054 221 by 54R still get the remainder is 5 and that is what the question is asking us. Hence now. Now we can conclude that. Hence. 221 is the required smallest number, right? It is the required smallest number. That's it. So what is the Mercury since this is a word problem. You have to give the answer in terms of statements as well. Okay you to give the answer in terms of statement only. Okay guys, that's it for today's Q&A video.
