### Re: 10 second questions

Hi bobbym,

The solutios (a), (b), (c), and (d) are correct. Excellent!

The solution (e)

#4422. Find the Least Common Multiple and Greatest Common Divisor of the following pairs of integers and verify that
LCM x GCD = product of the two numbers.
(a) 26 and 91
(b) 510 and 92
(c) 336 and 54

Hi bobbym,

The solution(s) #4422 is/are correct. Good work!

#4423. The Least Common Multiple of two numbers is 64699, and their Greatest Common Divisor is 97. One of the numbers is 2231. Find the other.

#4424. The product of two numbers is 20736 and their Greatest Common Divisor is 54. Find their Least Common Multiple.

Hi bobbym,

The solutions #4441 and #4442 are perfect. Outstanding!

#4443. Seven times a two-digit number is equal to four times the number obtained by reversing the digits. If the difference between the digits is 3, find the number.

#4444. A takes 3 hours more than B to cover  distance of 30 kilometers. But, if A doubles his speed he is ahead of B by 90 minutes; find their speeds of walking.
