Solution

Beep duration of first device = 60 seconds
Beep duration of second device = 62 seconds
∴ Interval of beeping together = LCM (60, 62)
Prime factorization:
60 = 22 × 3 × 5
62 = 2 × 31
∴ LCM = 22 × 3 × 5 × 31 = 1860 seconds =  `1860/60 `= 31min
Hence, they will beep together again at 10 : 31 a.m.
