2. Sara bought two boards of wood for a club project. One board is 18 inches long and the other board is 30 inches long. She wants to cut the wood into the longest equal-sized pieces possible, with no wood left over. Sara wonders if she has enough wood for 10 equal-sized pieces.

Sara could list the of 18 and 30 and then find the value the lists have in common. The length of the longest equal-sized pieces she can cut from both boards, with no left over, is inches. She will be able to cut pieces from the 18-inch board and pieces from the 30-inch board. She have enough wood to cut 10 equal-sized pieces for her club project.
