Definition of LCM (Least common multiple)

The LCM of two numbers is the smallest number that they both divide evenly into.

As given in the equation

A sporting goods store gave a free t-shrit to every 8th customer and a free water bottle to every 10th customer.

Let take 8 be as one number and 10 be as another number.

LCM (8,10) = 2 * 2 * 2 * 5

= 40

Also

A sporting goods store gave a free t-shrit to every 8th customer and a free water bottle to every 10th customer.

This is shown in the table given below.

As shown in the table the common value is 40.

Therefore

The first to get a free t-shirt and a free water bottle is 40th customer.

Hence proved
