What length of time will elapse before they chime together again? a) 2 hr. and 24 min. b) 4 hr. and 48 min. c) 1 hr. and 36 min. d) 5 hr. e) 2 hr. It should be simple. All the three bells will chime again together whenver their time intervals intersect eachother. So the LCM of the three time intervals (18, 24,32) would be the answer. LCM (18, 24, 32) = 288 => 4 hours 48 mins.

LCM of 18, 24, 32 \(= 2^6 * 3^2 = 288\) \(\frac{288}{60} = 4\) Hrs something Answer = B

A. 2 hr. and 24 min. B. 4 hr. and 48 min. C. 1 hr. and 36 min. D. 5 hr. E. 2 hr. Since three bells chime at an interval of 18 min, 24 min, & 32 min. So, if they begin together , then they will chime together again after an interval of LCM of 18,24 & 32 = 288 = 4 Hrs. 48 minutes. Answer B
