If snacks were being handed out, I'm definitely joining So this is how I would tackle this problem. You have to find a common number. You know how they say Find the common denominator? This is the same. Since you're biggest choice is 140, I would write out multiples of 10 until 140 (10,20,30,40,50, etc). The same with 4 and 7. After that, I would look to see which number showed up all 3 times. Process of elimination works too. For example, one choice is 40. Does 7 go into 40 evenly? No. So scratch that answer.

Actually, do process of elimination, takes 15 seconds
