Accepted Solution

To find the least number of buns and bratwursts Akeela should buy so there are none left over, you will think of how each number is grouped as a multiple.

Bratwurst - 6, 12, 18, 24, 32, ...
Buns - 8, 16, 24, ...

She can buy 24 of each if she buys 4 packages of 6 bratwursts and 3 packages of 8 buns.
