An artist had 45 pieces of turquoise and 60 cat's eye marbles.each sculpture she made contained the same number of each kind of stone and more than one of each. What is the greatest number of sculptures she could have made ?
The way I read this, a sculpture with the least material would be 2T and 2M, T being tourquoise and M being marbles
So she could make 21 of these minimum's plus one of 3T ,3M
using 45 T's and 45 M's
for a maximum of 22 sculptures.posted by Reiny
