The code for the above problem is written in python as follos

for x in range(0,1000):
a=15*x
y=a%16
if y==10 :
z=a%17
if z==3:
print(a)

The output of the above code is

3930
8010
12090

so the least possible value is 3930

We can  find the value using c program.....

#include<stdio.h>

#include<conio.h>

#include<math.h>

main()

{

int a,x,y,z,n;

x=0;

y=3;

z=10;

for(a=0;a<=100;a++)

{

if((y==a%17) && (z==a%16) && (x==a%15))

printf("%d",a);

}

getch();

}

we can get the output as 3930 and 8010 (from 0 to 10000)

so the lowest number is 3930
