  1. Notice that 9 is the largest common factor of both 36 and 27

    so we place the chocolate cookies on 3 trays of 9 each
    and the oatmeal cookies on 4 trays of 9 each.

    looks like 9 is the number you are looking for.

  2. Oh that makes sense. I forgot to look at the largest common factor. Thank you, I was thinking it was every other and how many can fit onto a tray! Thank you! That may help me in my other problem as well!
