Answer:20

Step-by-step explanation:To find the least number of leafs that each collection must have, we find the L.C.M of both numbers. So L.C.M of 4 and 5.

The prime factors of 4 = 2²

The prime factors of 5 = 5

So L.C.M of 4 and 5 = 2² × 5 = 20

So, the least number of leafs that each collection can have is 20 leafs.
