Answer:

Explanation:

One easy way to determine lcm of small numbers is to multiply the larger number until a common multiple is found.
In this case, we can multiply 50 until we find a number that is divisible by 15.

#50*1=50#
not divisible by 15

#50*2=100#
not divisible by 15

#50*3=150#
divisible by 15

Therefore, the smallest number divisible by both 50 and 15 is 150.
