A goes around once every 6 minutes, B every 4 and C every 3. As LCM(6,4,3)=12, they will be at the starting point once every 12 min.

After t minutes, A B and C have done t/6, t/4 and t/3 laps. After 12 min. they have done 2,3 and 4 laps. Before this time, the number of laps done by A and B differ by less than one lap, so 12 minutes must elapse from the start of the race before they meet

Can you not answer question 2 just from question 1....did you elaborate just to provide answer in case question 2 is asked independetly.

Just want to make sure I am not missing some subtle point or a specific case.
I got it right as 12 for 1...and as soon as I read second I knew thats 12 as well. Isnt that right?

Thanks
