2 Answer

  • Answer:

    Number of hot dog packets = [tex]\frac{24}{12}[/tex] = 2

    Number of bun packets = [tex]\frac{24}{8}[/tex] = 3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Beverley is buying hot dogs and hot dog buns for a picnic. She wants to buy one got dog for each bun with none left over. The hot dogs come packed 12 in a package. The buns come packed 8 in a package.

    We have to find the lowest common multiple of 8 and 12 and from observation we can see that it is 24.

    So Beverly would have to buy around 24 pieces of hot dogs and buns.

    Number of hot dog packets = [tex]\frac{24}{12}[/tex] = 2

    Number of bun packets = [tex]\frac{24}{8}[/tex] = 3
