**Given**: Anish goes fishing every 5th day.

Balaji goes fishing every 7th day.

Let today be day 0.

Anish and Balaji went fishing today.

Anish will go fishing again in 5 days and again in another 5 days from then.

i.e., **Anish** will go fishing on the following days from today: 5, 10, 15, 20, ...

Anish will therefore, go fishing on days that are **multiples of 5.**

Balaji will go fishing again in 7 days and again in another 7 days from then.

i.e., **Balaji** will go fishing on the following days from today: 7, 14, 21, ....

Balaji will therefore, go fishing on days that are **multiples of 7.**

Anish and Balaji will go fishing on the same day again if that day is a multiple of 5 and 7.

i.e., on days that are common multiples of 5 and 7.

The first such common multiple is the lowest common multiple or ** LCM of 5 and 7.**

**Step 1**: Prime factorise 5 and 7

Both are prime numbers.

**Step 2**: LCM is the product of the largest power of all primes

= 5 × 7 = 35
