Teo Laura asked in Math

Rachel baked 45 cupcakes and 75 cookies for her son's party. What was the maximum number of trays she need to put these desserts on equally, without any leftovers?

Thank You

Dear Student

To find out maximum number of trays, we need to find H.C.F. (Highest Common Factor) of 45 and 75

For that we are going to use Euclid's Division Algorithm

So, H.C.F. of 75 and 45 is 15

Therefore, Required number of Maximum Trays are 15
