This month's Brain Byte

Suppose you have the following racehorses at a particular track:
  • This first horse, Snail’s Pace, can only run two laps per minute.

  • The second horse, Mean Mare, can run a respectable three laps per minute.

  • The final horse, Quicksilver, can run an impressive four laps per minute.

If you line up the horses at the starting line, and given that each runs at a steady pace and starts running at the same time, how many minutes will elapse until the next time the horses are all lined back up together at the starting line?
