Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.8Perfect! 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 ^_^
