Francesca is making fruit baskets. She has 20 apples and 6 oranges. Francesca wants to make all the fruit baskets identical without having any pieces of fruit left over. What is the greatest number of fruit baskets Francesca can make?


  1. Answer:
    2 fruit baskets each containing 10 apples and 3 oranges
    Step-by-step explanation:
    This is a greatest common factor question (GCF).
    The greatest common factor of 20 and 6 is 2.
    So the largest number of identical baskets with none left over is 2.
    20/2 = 10 apples in each basket and 6/2 = 3 oranges in each basket.
