Yes! So we want to figure out the smallest number that can be divided by the answer.

So, starting with x/2. 2/2 would = 1. So we make it x+1 for the answer. so if x=2 then x+1 would = 3

I apologize about number "4". Let me redo that.. so x/4= 1 so x =4 so x+1 = 5

So, if we apply this to everything then

2: ans=3

3: ans=4

4 ans = 5

5 ans = 6

6 ans = 7

8 ans = 9

9 ans = 10

I apologize again. I was finding the least common multiple at first. BUT this is how to find the least common integer. So sorry again for the confusion! Again, my apologies. I'm happy to answer anything else in more detail. But please disregard first.

And by least common = smallest (i/e: minimal)
