Answer :

To find greatest capacity of tin we should find HCF of 120 and 180 and 240


Prime factors of 120= 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5


Prime factors of 180 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 3 × 5


Prime factors of 240 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5


Therefore HCF of 120, 180 and 240 is: 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 60


Therefore the greatest capacity of a tin is 60 Liters
