    Least common multiple is correct.

    I'm a math teacher so if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    If a train leaves New York at 2:00 pm EST and heads west at 45 mph, and another train leaves LA at 12:00 pm PST heading east at 62 mph, at what time will the two trains crash into each other and erupt into a massive fireball?

    You may be a Math teacher, but didn't you get in "B" in Stats 135?

    Shut your hole.

    BTW, since when does LCM have to do with Statistics?

    Which reminds me, didn't you get an A- or B in UVC?

    Well.. I got a C in 135... maybe I should have gone more than 7 times.

    I have no idea what I got as a grade in UVC... I guess I passed it... but I do remember picking up a hot blonde girl in that class, buying her coffee and then yada yada yada... AKAK went home to tell the story.

    Yes, I got an A- in UVC. Ironic that I ended up teaching the honors version of the course to pre-health science students.

    buckeyegrad,

    Interesting how a class that the stoner :pimp: next to me, who never showed up, got an A in but you couldn't. :rofl:

    Problem with your comparison is that we had different instructors--my guy actually took the class seriously and would penalize us that did not.

    You're full of bullshit. I was undecided and had more work in UVC than all of you guys on our floor combined. We had to do all kinds of crap since we were undecided to help us pick majors.

    I bet I wrote at lest 5 or 6 papers not to mention all of those stupid tests you take to determine your occupation.

    Don't make up excuses for your inadequacies.
