Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Then start from the lowest one (E) it can not be devided by 9 - out
Then (D) can not be devided by 4 - out
Now (C) can be devided by any of these integers.
Integer is devided by 2 if it's even.
..... by 3 and 9 if sum of all digits is devided by 3.
..... by 4 if the last two digits are devided by 4.
..... by 6 if the integer is devided by 2 and by 3.
..... by 5 if the integer ends on zero or 5.
Your procedure would work fine as long as the answers dont have multiples of the LCM. Say if C = 5040 which is 2520*2 then ..
So taking the LCM is the best approach. _________________
