Sausages come in packets of 6. Bread rolls come in packets of 8. Brian wants to buy enough packs of sausages and rolls so that there are an equal number of sausages and rolls. What is the minimum number of sausages and rolls he needs to buy?

\(lcm(6,8) = 24 \)

 

packets of Sausages \(= \dfrac{24}{6} = 4\)
packets of Bread rolls \(= \dfrac{24}{8} = 3\)
