What is the least common multiple of the numbers 9, 12 and 16?

36

96

108

144

The multiples of 16 are 16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, …
The multiples of 12 are 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84, 96, 108, 120, 132, 144, …
The multiples of 9 are 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90, 99, 108, 117, 126, 135, 144, …
The least common multiple of 9, 12 and 16 is 144.

TIP: For a multiple choice test, you might just check which of the answers are multiples of the three numbers. 96 is not divisible by 9, 36 is not divisible by 16, and 108 is not divisible by 16. 144 is the only common multiple in the answer choices.
