If I have two events that occur on a specific interval (one every 8 seconds, the other every 200 milliseconds) but were not started synchronously, how can I calculate the frequency with which these two events will occur at the same time?
Looking at the numbers, it seems that unless they start synchronously, they will never coincide. If they started synchronously, in a perfect world, it would be every 8 seconds.
Obviously there is some variation/imperfection because they do coincide occasionally despite not starting at the same time.
I suppose I am looking for a harmonic, or additive function. Forgive me, my math knowledge is lacking.
