Willy and Wilma both got jobs at McBurgers. Willy started on Sunday and gets every ninth day off. Wilma started the very next day ( Monday ) and gets every sixth day off. Willy would like to ask wilma out on a date on a day when both of them have the day off from work. When can they schedule their big date?
Please tell me the answer and why.

I suspect you're supposed to use Least Common Multiples for this.
