# Python Math: Find the smallest multiple of the first n numbers

## Python Math: Exercise-10 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the smallest multiple of the first n numbers. Also, display the factors.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
def smallest_multiple(n):
if (n<=2):
return n
i = n * 2
factors = [number for number in range(n, 1, -1) if number * 2 > n]
print(factors)
while True:
for a in factors:
if i % a != 0:
i += n
break
if (a == factors[-1] and i % a == 0):
return i
print(smallest_multiple(13))
print(smallest_multiple(11))
print(smallest_multiple(2))
print(smallest_multiple(1))
```

Sample Output:

[13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7] 360360 [11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6] 27720 2 1
