Mr Abraham’s is able to divide the learners in his Mathematics class into equal groups of 2, 5 or 6 members without leaving any learners out. What is the smallest possible number of learners in the class?

You just need to find the smallest number that can be divided by 2    or  5    or   6    evenly

   The Least Common Multiple

 

there are various ways to do this   

start with 5     multiples of 5   are    5   10  15   20  25  30   35    etc     see any number in htere that is also divisible by 2   and  6 ?
