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

Dear a the quedtion solved .when we ake LCM 2 comes two time and 3 also omes two time and these two digits have there perfect square so we make the perfect square of 5 and we have to b multiply with 5 again so it become perfect multiply and the answer become 900 .
2^2*3^3*5=180*5=900
