Scissors come in packages of 3. glue sticks come. in packages of 10 martha wants to buy the same number of each . what is the fewest glue sticks martha can buy

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.

The fewest she can buy is 30.

30

30 303 03 03 03 3 -303 33-3 irifna.smnfal.

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.
