Museum employees are preparing an exhibit of ancient coins. They have 49 copper coins and 35 silver coins to arrange on shelves. Each shelf will have the same number of copper coins and same number of silver coins. How many shelves will the employees need for this exhibit?
(HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE???)

  • Math -

    Both 49 and 35 are evenly divisible by 7. So 7 shelves must be needed.

    Each shelf will contain 7 copper coins and 5 silver coins.
