(page 40)

Our class recently had to do mystery op 5 for homework and mostly all the people in the class got the lowest common factor for the answer to triangle.

I hope you feel this answer is corect and post it on your website.

Example:6 triangle 8 =24 means 6 and 8 are the least common multiple of 24

Of course, I'll post it even if you're wrong. It's interesting, isn't it (well, I think so) that we usually think of "least common multiple" as having to do with whole numbers, while the problem uses some fractions.
