Find the greatest number of four digits which is exactly divisible by 15, 24 and 36.

Open in App Solution Sol:

Prime factorization:

15 = 3 x 5 24 = 2^3 x 3 36 = 2^2 x 3^2

LCM = product of greatest power of each prime factor involved in the numbers = 2^3 x 3^2x 5=360

Now, the greatest four digit number is 9999.

On dividing 9999 by 360 we get 279 as remainder.

Thus, 9999 – 279 = 9720 is exactly divisible by 360.

Hence, the greatest number of four digits which is exactly divisible by 15, 24 and 36 is 9720.
