In 12 days, Matthew will go hiking and swimming on the same day based on his current schedule.

This problem requires one to find the lowest common multiple of 2 numbers; in other words, \(lcm(6,12)=?\)

This one might be more obvious than other problems because 12 is a multiple of 6, and 12 is, of course, a multiple of itself. Therefore, \(lcm(6,12)=12\)

The result of \(lcm(6,12)\) is the fewest number of days until Matthew does both kinds of excerises again.
