Apples and pears

Mom divided 24 apples and 15 pears among the children. Each child received the same number of apples and pears - the same number as his siblings. How many apples (j=?) and pears (h=?) received each child?

Correct answer:

j =  8
h =  5

Step-by-step explanation:

24=233 15=35 GCD(24,15)=3  d=GCD(24,15)=3 j=24/d=24/3=8
h=15/d=15/3=5
