# Finding the Maximum Number of Bags for Lee's Scones

## Lee's Scones Dilemma

**Lee has 14 strawberry scones and 35 raspberry scones and he wants to make as many identical bags of scones as possible. Each bag should have an equal number of strawberry scones and an equal number of raspberry scones. What is the greatest number of bags we can fill and explain how you know.**

## Answer:

**7 is the greatest number of bags Lee can fill.**

Step-by-step explanation:

Given: Lee has 14 strawberry scones and 35 raspberry scones.

Now, when we are finding the maximum number of bags Lee can fill with an equal number of strawberry scones and raspberry scones, we will be using the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) to determine the number of bags.

In total, **7** is the greatest number of bags that Lee can fill with an equal number of strawberry and raspberry scones.
