A gardener has 27 pansies and 36 daisies. Ha plants an equal number of each type of flower in each row. What is the greatest possible number of pansies in each row? explain

3 rows of pansies and 9 pansies in each row. (3x9=27)
4 rows of daisies, 9 in each row.
(4x9=36)
Hope that helps!

We know that
\( 27= 3*3*3 \\ 27=3^{3} \)
and
\( 36=2*2*3*3 \\ 36= 2^{2} * 3^{2} \)
THe greatest common factor is equal to \( 3^{2} \)

\( 9 \) is the largest number that divides into \( 27 \) and \( 36 \)
so
rows of pansies are equal to
\( 27/9 \\ 3 \)

rows of daisies are equal to
\( 36/9 \\ 4 \)

each row has \( 9 \) flowers

the answer is
\( 3 \) rows of pansies
\( 4 \) rows of daisies
