The length of the given rods are 64 cm, 80 cm and 96 cm.
To find :
We have to find the least length of cloth that can be measured an exact number of times using any one of the above rods.
The least common multiple of 64, 80, 96 is the required least length of the cloth.
Prime factorization of 64=2×2×2×2×2×2=2*6
Prime factorization of 80=2×2×2×2×5=2*4 ×5
Prime factorization of 96=2×2×2×2×2×3= 2*5 ×3
LCM == Product of highest power of each prime factor.
960 cm == 9.6 m.
