Expert Answer

Let n be the number:
n + 2000 = m
the factor of 10 are 5 x 2, so m must have these numbers as factors
the factor of 12 are 3 x 2 x 2 so m must have these numbers as factors
the factor of 16 are 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 so m must have these numbers as factors
the factor of 18 are 3 x 3 x 2 so m must have these numbers as factors

m must have as factors at least:
16 x 3 x 3 x 5 = 720

2 x 720 is less than 2000
3 x 720 = 2160

2160-2000=160

n = 160
