I'm not sure how to solve this problem. I know that i need to divide 36 cookies. But not sure how to figure out the number of groups. Am i using multiples of 4?

Marie made 3 dozen cookies. She needs to dived them evenly into groups greater than 4. What are all the possible equal size groups into which she can divide?

Think about the factors of 36

3 * 12

4 * 9

6 * 6

Thank you! So, possible sizes are 6, 9, and 12. I really didn't need to use multiples of 4 at all.
