    it sounds like you should first try to find the Greatest Common Factor?

    Well let's try to list out the factors of each number then to see :) 60: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, 60 ^ 84: 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 12, 14, 21, 28, 42, 84 ^ 24: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24 ^ so what do you think the Greatest Common Factor can be? :)

    Perfect! That should get you your answer because it is the biggest Factor that they all have in common if you want, you can divide each of the given numbers (60, 84, 24) by 12 to get the number of each type of flowers in one bouquet but really the answer is just as simple as that: 12 ^_^
