LCM equation (Posted on 2013-11-19) Difficulty: 2 of 5
The least common multiple (LCM) of 2 numbers is the smallest number that they both divide evenly into.
e.g.:
LCM(8,10)=40
LCM(17,11)=187

For any integer n, show that LCM(9n + 8, 6n + 5) = 54n^2 + 93n + 40.

Solution Proof Comment 5 of 5 |
GCD(9n+8, 6n+5)=GCD(6n+5, 3n+3)=GCD(3n+3, 3n+2)=GCD(3n+2, 1)=1
Therefore, LCM(9n+8, 6n+5)=(9n+8)(6n+5)=54n^2+93n+40.
