Shondra has 72 roses and 48 lilies. She wants to make 8 bouquets with them, with the same number of each type of flower in each bouquet. How many flowers will be in each bouquet?

visoth,
9 roses and 6 lilies
all i did was divide both number by 8 to figure out how many of each will go in each bouquet

Ms. Sue,
72/8 = 9
48/8 = 6
She'll have 9 roses and 6 lilies in each bouquet.

Trey,
Thanks, We did that part, but what confused us was that the problem said 8 bouquets with the SAME NUMBER of each type of flower in each bouquet. Maybe I'm just reading into it to much

Ms. Sue,
I missed that part  the SAME NUMBER.
Maybe it means there are only 6 of each flower in each bouquet.
It is confusing.

visoth,
what that means is that they want each bouquet have the exact same number of roses in them, and that each bouquet has to have the exact same amount of lilies ( like bouquet 1 cant have 2 roses when bouquets 2 only has 1, bouquet 1 cant have 6 lilies when bouquet 2 has 2 lilies)

Trey,
That's what I thought, but that sure seems a little advanced for 3rd grade. Thank you so much for all your help I really appreciate it!
