```
function smallestCommons(arr) {
let min = (arr[0] > arr[1]) ? arr[1] : arr[0];
// while loop
while (true) {
if (min % arr[0] == 0 && min % arr[1] == 0) {
console.log(min);
break;
}
min++;
}
console.log(min);
}
smallestCommons([5,1]);

Challenge: Smallest Common Multiple

Link to the challenge:

Hello!
The reason [1,5] = 60 is because 60 is the smallest number which can be divided by 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and still remain an integer.

So for example, 5 is not a multiple of 2, 3 or 4, and 10 is not a multiple of 3 or 4.
Does that make sense?

I think @AndreasGuldborg explained it pretty well, but in case you would like to read more on it, and have a calculator to test around with, you may find this link helpful:
