We have to find out the LCM of 1,2,3,2^2,5,2*3,7

Hence LCM = 1*3*2^2*5*7= 420

2, 3, 5 and 7 are all prime, and multiplying them gives 210.

4 is 2*2, so multiplying 210 by 2 gives 420.

6 is 2*3, but since both 2 and 3 are already prime and included as factors of 420, no need to multiply them again. That leaves 420 as the LCM of 7!.
