I have a machine which has four sequential cog wheels in constant mesh.

The largest cog has 242 teeth and the others have 160, 64 and 22 respectively.

How many revolutions must the largest cog make before each of the cogs is back in its starting position?

?

Hint: Try breaking each cog size into prime factors.
