252


help!

least common multiple of two number greater than 125 has to multiple of 126. i.e.
252. so if we take 126 and 252 (distinct integers ) then lowest possible common multiple will be 252.

factorize 126

126=3*3*2*7

we need lowest common multiple, so other integer should be 126 multiplied by 2 (lowest prime)

D
