**Problem 5**

2520 is the smallest number that can be divided by each of the numbers from 1 to 10 without any remainder.

What is the smallest positive number that is evenly divisible by all of the numbers from 1 to 20?

**Solution**

# 2520 is the smallest number that can be

# divided by each of the numbers from 1 to 10

# without any remainder.

# What is the smallest positive number

# that is evenly divisible by all of the

# numbers from 1 to 20?

#I had to shorten this to fit on the blog

#correctly so

#r = result

#e = element

answer = [16,9,5,7,11,13,17,19].inject(1) {|r, e| r * e }

puts answer
