hint [2/7]
This particular problem can be confusing because most people look for the smallest common multiple of the two number but forget the keyword range. This means that if you get [1,5]
then you have to check for the smallest common multiple for all these numbers [1,2,3,4,5] that is evenly divisible by all of them.
