  1. To find fewest glue sticks that Martha can buy so that he buys same no of glue sticks & scissors, find the least common factor of 3 and 10
    i.e,
    ↪LCM=3×10=30
    =3×1 packets glue
    =3 packets of glue➡ANS

    Hence, the fewest glue sticks Martha can buy is 30 glue sticks or 3 packets of glue sticks.

  2. Martha can buy 30 of each.

    If we find the LCM (Least Common Multiple) of each number, it would look something like this:

    3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30
    10: 10, 20, 30

    The LCM would be 30.
