BAGGING SNACKS - PAGE 33
1) What are the possible numbers of snack
packs she can make so that the treats are
shared equally? Describe each possibility.
36 bags of trail mix
24 apples
Would we find the GCF or LCM to help us
solve this problem?
24 – 24, 28, 72, 96
36 – 36, 72
LCM = 72
Would we find the GCF or LCM to help us
solve this problem?
24 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24
36 – 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18, 36
Common Factors = 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12

2) What is the greatest number of snack packs
Jane can make? Explain.
3) Suppose Jane’s pet canary ruins six of the
bags of trail mix. Jane wants to share the
apples and the remaining bags of trail mix
equally. What is the greatest number of
snack packs Jane can make?
4) Suppose Jane’s mother replaces the six bags
of trail mix. She also provides the group
