Here, you want to find the GCF, or the greatest common factor. Simplest way to do this is by listing out all the factors. 30: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 10, 15, 30 42: 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 14, 21, 42 So the greatest number that they share is 6. So there would be 6 picnic baskets. (With 5 sandwiches and 7 cookies in each)
