Shaquira is baking cookies to put in packages for a fund raiser. She has made 86 chocolate chip cookies and 42 sugar cookies. Shaquira wants to create identical packages containing cookies of both types to sell, and she must use all of the cookies. What is the greatest number of identical packages that Shaquira can make ?

Dear Student,

As we have 86 chocolate cookies and 42 sugar cookies.

Now we have to make identical packages with equal cookies in each type,

No. of cookies = HCF(86,42)
86 = 2*43
42 = 2*3*7
So HCF = 2
