1. The common multiple of 3 and 5 is 15 so it would be fifteen days later which would be May 20th.

2. she would need 3 packages of hot dogs and 2 packages of buns.

3. the greatest common factor of 40 and 32 is 8 therefore there would need to be 8 teams of each. There would then be 5 teams of 8 girls and 4 teams of 8 boys.

4. the least common multiple of 6, 3, and 5 is 30 so it will be 30 minutes before they are all at the starting point again.

5. 8 is the greatest common factor of 32, 24 and 16 so there would be 8 displays.

shelves question - the greatest common factor of 8, 12, and 16 is 4 so there would be 4 in each section

6. I believe there is something missing in question 6. However, if not, the least common multiple of those would be 42.

7. The least number in the band would be 30 (the least common multiple of 6 and 10).

8. the greatest common factor of 36, 54, and 72 is 9, therefore each member paid $9 per day

bus question - the least common multiple of 25 and 15 is 75 so 75 minutes later.

9. the gcf of 15, 9, and 18 is 3 - so there would be three baskets - there woudl be 5 oranges in each, 3 peaches in each, and 6 pears in each.

10. GCF is 20 (2*2*5) and LCM is 4800 (2*2*2*2*3*4*5*5)
