The traffic lights at three different road crossings change after every 24 s, 72s and 120s respectively. If they all change simultaneously at 10: 54: 00 hours, then at what time they will change simultaneously. Solution: interval of change = LCM of (24, 72, 120) s = 360s The lights will change simultaneously after every 360 seconds, i.e 6 min.00 s Thus next simultaneous change will take place at 11:00:00 hours.
