Anthony plans to ride 175 km on his bike and Samantha plans to ride 250 km. They both plan to complete their journeys in a whole number of days.
a) How many kilometers could each person travel if they both ride the same number of kilmeters each day?
b) Howmany days will each person have to ride for each common factor you found in part (a)? Explain.

math 
Ms. Sue,
The greatest common factor of 175 and 250 is 25.
175/25 = ?
250/25 = ?
Take it from there. 
math 
Van,
So..175/25 = 7
and 250/25=25
So, anthony travels 7 km a day and sam travels 25 km. each day. 
math 
Van,
for part b do I times 7 & 25 by 7 days?

math 
Ms. Sue,
The problem states that they each ride the same number of kilometers a day. How many km is that?

math 
Van,
25 km'

math 
Ms. Sue,
Right. They each ride 25 km per day.
b) How many days will each person have to ride for each common factor you found in part (a)? Explain. 
math 
Van,
oh godd....thanks again! ;)

math 
Ms. Sue,
You're welcome.

math 
muhaimin,
wait what? 250/25 is 10?
