solution:

LCM(7,6,5,4,3,2)=420

now subtract 1 frm answer ...............so the answer will be 419.....

TRICK: Since the diff between the remainder and dividend is common(1 in this case ) u subtract 1 from the LCM

449 is the smallest number that satisfies those requirements.

The least number is -6710. That gives the sum as 6710 + (-6710) = 0, which is a perfect square.The least positive number is 14.

That is called the least common multiple, or the least common denominator.

449 is the smallest number that satisfies those requirements.

The numbers divided by 5 gives 1 remainder means it should end either 1 or 6. But in case of number ends with 6 will be divided by 2. So only number ending with 1 have to consider. Also the number should be divisble by 7. So when number ending with 3 is multiplied by 7 will give result of number ending 1. So, possibilities are 7*3, 7*13, 7*23, etc In that least number which solves this problem 7*43 = 301. So the least possible number is 301.

The answer is 344.

The smallest number that can be divided by two or more different denominator is 2. It can be divided by itself and 1.

Yes it can . . . at least by itself and by the number, 'one'.

127 is the least prime number greater than 25 that will have a remainder of 2 when divided by 25.

LCM stands for least common multiple.This means the smallest number that can be divided by each of two given operands.Since the question only gives one operand it can not be answered.

No, it is an even number and therefore can be at least divided by 2.

No, 537 is not prime. It can be divided by 3 and at least one other number.
