We can do it like this too see first add all the numbers 12+18+30 = 60 ( 6x10=60)

Then 16 + 24 + 40= 80 (8x10=80)

45 + 18 + 27 = 90(9x10=90)

So the answer is 9.

Then 16 + 24 + 40= 80 (8x10=80)

45 + 18 + 27 = 90(9x10=90)

So the answer is 9.

(12,18,30) are multiples of 6.

(16,24,40) are multiples of 8.

(45,18,27) are multiples of 9.

(16,24,40) are multiples of 8.

(45,18,27) are multiples of 9.

See 12+18 = 30/6 = 5.

16 + 24 = 40/8 = 5.

45 + 18 = 63/7 = 9.

16 + 24 = 40/8 = 5.

45 + 18 = 63/7 = 9.

12-30 = 18, so smallest number subtraction by 18-12 = 6

16-40 = 24, so smallest number subtraction by 24-16 = 8

45-27 = 18, so smallest number subtraction by 18-27 = 9

Therefore the answer is an option (c) 9.

16-40 = 24, so smallest number subtraction by 24-16 = 8

45-27 = 18, so smallest number subtraction by 18-27 = 9

Therefore the answer is an option (c) 9.

6*2=12 6*3=18 6*5=30

8*2=16 8*3=24 8*5=40

18÷2=9 27÷3=9 45÷5=9.

Therefore the answer is option (C) 9.

8*2=16 8*3=24 8*5=40

18÷2=9 27÷3=9 45÷5=9.

Therefore the answer is option (C) 9.
