a florist has 20 daisies and 36 carnations. She wants to put the same number of each type of flower into vases. what are the possible number of vases she can use?
20 & 36 in one, or
10 and 18 on two, or
5 and 9 in four.
There are no other possibilities.
The number of vases must be a prime factor of both 20 and 36.

A flower store has 24 roses and 36 carnations. It puts the same number of flowers in each of 6 bouquets.
How many flowers are in each bouquet?
