But doing your way of adding fractions, finding a least common multiple of the denominators .
In this environment, the maximum of the least common multiple of delivery cycles is 2520, and then the timetable for delivery is from time 0 to time 2519.
An Artin-Tits monoid is clearly homogeneous, has the left and right cancellation property (see Michel, Proposition 2.4 of [17]) and has the least common multiple property (see Brieskorn and Saito, Proposition 4.1 of [7]).
A rational positive number m is said to be the least common multiple of a and b if m is a multiple of both a and b and if c is any other common multiple of a and b, then m [less than or equal to] c.
Following the definitions 4-6 above, we denote by (a, b) the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the rational numbers a and b, and by [ a, b] the least common multiple (LCM) of the nonzero rational numbers a and b.
, [x.sub.t]] denote the greatest common divisor and the least common multiple of any positive integers [x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], ...
Abstract For any positive integer n, let SL(n) denotes the least positive integer k such that L(k) [equivalent to] 0 (mod n), where L(k) denotes the Least Common Multiple of all integers from 1 to k.

Let ([x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], ..., [x.sub.t]) and [[x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], ..., [x.sub.t] denote the greatest common divisor and the least common multiple of any positive integers [x.sub.1], [x.sub.2], ..., [x.sub.t] respectively.

They will also develop a conceptual understanding of equivalent fractions and least common multiples instead of merely memorizing rules or algorithms.
