Before making invitations, Katrina counted the supplies she bought for her party. She counted 36 water balloons and 81 beads to make bracelets. She then needed to decide how many invitations to make. What is the largest number of friends she can invite so each person gets the same amount of water balloons and each friend gets the same number of beads?

9 is the highest integer which will divide into 36 and 81 a whole number of times (assuming this is what you actually want to know). 36 = 9 * 4 81 = 9 * 9 Of course, we could also answer this specific question with "1" or "3" also.

We have to make sure that the amount of friends she has are able to all get an equal amount of water balloons and beads, though.
