A nonconformity A happens every 13 years.

Another nonconformity happens every 17 years.

How to calculate when they happen together again?

Re: Recurence of nonconformities

Since both are prime numbers, it would simply be the product of the two numbers: 221 years after the last time they occurred together.

It would be a bit more invloved if they were not both prime.
