Bridget has 32 pencils and 48 pens she wants to make identical bags of pencils and pens to give to her friend what is the highest number of friends that she can give a bag to and have nothing left over?

Note that the greatest divisor  of 32 and 48  =  16

 

So....she can give bags to 16 friends  consisting  of  2 pencils and 3 pens each
