Dear student,

The number of participants in each room must be the HCF of 60, 84 aSnd 108.So, by euclid's division lemma,  108= 84×1+24  84= 24×3+12  24=12×2  therefore, the hcf of 108 and 84 is 12.  similarly the hcf of 60 and 84 will be 12.     Therefore in each room, 12 members can sit.  Total number of participants= 60+84+108=252  Number of rooms required= total studentsnumber of students in one room  Number of rooms required=25212=21therefore, 21 rooms are required
