We have to find out, HCF(LCM(24,25,26,27),LCM(15,16,17,18))=HCF(70200,12240)=360

Ans. (A)

A. 360
B. 720
C. 2160
D. 4320
E. 6480



So A is nothing but LCM of 24,25,26 and 27..
24=2^3*3
25=5^2
26=2*13
27=3^3
LCM =2^3*3^3*5^2*13

And B is the LCM of 15,16,17,18
15=3*5
16=2^4
17=17
18=2*3^2
B= 2^4*3^2*5*17

Now our answer is the HCF as we are looking for factor
A=2^3*3^3*5^2*13
B=2^4*3^2*5*17

Common factors = 2^3*3^2*5=8*9*5=360

A
