# Three persons A, B, C run along a circular path of 8 km. long. They start their race from the same point and at the same time with a speed of 4 km., 6 km., and 8 km. After what time will they meet again?

 A) 3 hrs. B) 1 hr. C) 4 hrs. D) $$\Large \frac{2}{3}$$ hrs.

 C) 4 hrs.

Time taken by A, B, C to cover 8 kms. is 2 hr, $$\Large \frac{4}{3}$$hrs and 1 hour respectively.

LCM of 2, $$\Large \frac{4}{3}$$, 1

Use the formula LCM = $$\Large \frac{LCM\ of\ Nrs.}{HCF\ of\ Drs.}=\frac{4}{1}=4$$

They will meet again after 4 hrs.
