Martin is making trail mix out of 16 bags of nuts and 8 bags of dried fruit.  He wants each new portion of trail mix to be identical, containing the same combination of bags and buts and bags of dried fruit., with no bags left over.  What is the greatest number of portions of trail mex Martin can make

For the trail mix portions to be identical, they need to have the same number of bags in each portion, and we can quickly figure out this by doing GCM (16,8) and getting 8. So the highest is 8 portions

 

Your answer is 8.
