  1. the number has to be evenly divisible by 12,15,18.

    12 = 2^2 * 3
    15 = 3 * 5
    18 = 2 * 3^2
    LCM is thus 2^2 * 3^2 * 5 = 180

    But, we want the number to be a perfect square. Since it already is a multiple of 2^2 and 3^2, we just need to add a factor of 5 to get 5^2.

    180*5 = 900
