Question #11

This year, Central Middle School is having a bake sale. Two teams of students bake cookies.

  • Josie's team sells cookies in boxes of 36.
  • Rich's team sells cookies in bags of 20.

After the bake sale, 1 box and 1 bag of cookies remained. The organizers decided to give the remaining cookies to the 6 students on the teams. Each student received the same number of cookies.

What is the largest number of cookies each student could have received?

How many extra cookies would be left after each student received that number of cookies?
