**bobpursley**, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 6:25pmThe smallest common factor of each is 2, 3, 4, and up. Now the trick is to look at the ratio

48/60=reduces to 3/4 Since both the numberator and the denominator are common factors, then use these: 3 pieces of candy and 4 pieces of gum. Now you can answer the question.
