The first thing you want to do is list numbers that add up to 10. When you get these numbers, ask yourself, "is 12 a multiple of both of these numbers?"

So, list your number pairs that add up to 10.

- 10 + 0 = 10.
- 12 is NOT a multiple of both numbers.
- 9 + 1 = 10.
- 12 is NOT a multiple of both numbers.
- 8 + 2 = 10
- 12 is NOT a multiple of both numbers.
- 7 + 3 = 10
- 12 is NOT a multiple of both numbers.
- 6 + 4 = 10
- 12 IS a multiple of both numbers.
- 5 + 5 = 10
- 12 is NOT a multiple of both numbers.

The number pair that adds up to 10 and has 12 as a multiple is 6 and 4. Now we have to find out if 12 is the LEAST common multiple of these numbers. List the multiples of both numbers until you get a common multiple for both of them. If that common multiple is 12, then the answer is correct.

- 6: 6,
**12**. - 4: 4, 8,
**12**.

12 is, in fact, the least common multiple of 6 and 4, and the sum does add up to 10. The numbers

**6 and 4**are your correct answer.
