Steven has 64 packets of sugar and 112 packets of artificial sweetener. She wants to divide them into identical groups, with no packets left over, so that the groups can be distributed to some tables at the restaurant where he works. What is the greatest number of groups Steven can make?

We're looking for the GCD of 112 and 64. 

112 = 2*2*2*2*7

64 = 2*2*2*2*2*2

The greatest divisor is 2*2*2*2 = 16. 

So our answer is 16. :))
