get the number which is divdd by 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 with a remain 1 !

i got the number its 5251 but the question how can we calculate that !?

In what order? For divison, that matters.

"In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."

2521.

To find the Least Common Multiple of two or more numbers, first get the prime factors of each of the numbers.

2 = 2

3 = 3

4 = 2 ** 2 (2 raised to the 2nd power)

5 = 5

6 = 2 * 3

7 = 7

8 = 2 ** 3 (2 raised to the 3rd power)

9 = 3 ** 3 (3 raised to the 2nd power)

Then look at each of the prime factors (2, 3, 5, and 7) and determine the highest "power" for each one. For 2, it's 3 (8 is 2 to the 3rd power). For 3, it's 2 (9 is 3 to the 2nd power). For 5 and 7, it's one. Now multiple all of these together. (2**3) * (3**2) * 5 * 7 = 2520. You want to have a remainder of 1, so add one to it.

2521 / 2 = 1260 with Remainer of 1

2521 / 3 = 840 R1

2521 / 4 = 630 R1

2521 / 5 = 504 R1

2521 / 6 = 420 R1

2521 / 7 = 360 R1

2521 / 8 = 315 R1

2521 / 9 = 280 R1

2521 / 10 = 252 R1

2520 is found on an Ancient Egyptian temple. Archaeologists infer that Ancient Egyptians were so good at math!

for 2520 can divide 1 to 10 and is the smallest natural number who could do this.
