Answer:

It is #45#. See explanation.

Explanation:

The lowest common multiple (LCM) of numbers #a# and #b# can be calculated as:

#lcm(a,b)=(axxb)/gcd(a,b)#

where #gcd# is the greatedt common divisor

In the given example the greatest common divisor (gcd) is #1#, so the lowest common multiple is #lcm(5,9)=5xx9=45#
