Storyboard Text

  • do you have 3 boxes of 11 cupcakes? Our girl has a birthday.
  • Hi guys! third time this week! you must need the free ice cream coupon. What would you like today?
  • you're on to something. I think. wait. 9 and 12 are composite numbers...... I think you- actually nope.
  • oh I'm sorry, but we don't. But we do have 3 groups of 12 for cupcakes and 9 groups of 4 for toppings.
  • what do you mean?
  • The multiples of 9 are: 9,18,27,36. Let's stop there. For 12 , we have 12,24,36. Now, you have 33 cupcakes for all the guests, and 3 for you guys and your daughter.
  • I mean that we need to not look for a common multiple, like 12 multiplied by 9. That's too much. I mean we should look for the least common multiple. We can solve this by using a simple strategy.
