Storyboard Text

  • I need to get the same number of bags of pet food for my bunnies and hamsters. The bunnies eat 1 1/2 bags of food a day and the hamsters eat 1 bag of food a day. I don't need the same amount of food, just the same number of bags. I need food for them to last at least 4 days.
  • 1 1/2: 1 1/2, 3, 4 1/2, 61: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
  • I can get 6 bags of bunny food and and 6 bags of hamster food because for the bunnies, 6 bags will last 4 days, and the hamster food will last 6 days.
  • I used least common multiple because I know that I have to get enough food for at least 4 days. So I listed the multiples of 1 1/2 and 1, to get the answer.
