The children of the tennis school received 64 white and 48 yellow balls from the sponsor. When asked about how many balls they could take, they answered: "You have so many that none of you will have more than ten balls, and all will have the same number of white and yellow balls. How many children were in the tennis school?

Correct answer:

n =  16

Step-by-step explanation:

64=26 48=243 GCD(64,48)=24=16  n=GCD(64,48)=16  m=(64+48)/n=(64+48)/16=7 m<10  n=16=16
