Ok you know that there are only going to be able to be 99 hot dogs and 99 hot dog buns in order to make the problem work.

99 + 99 = 198

Then take 198 and divide by even numbers because you know that you will have to have 1 hot dog and 1 bun (2 together) to see how much is the most you will be able to put onto the trays.

He can use 99 trays and have 1 hot dog and 1 hot dog bun.
