A milk man has 150 litres of milk of higher fat and 240 litres of milk of lower fat. He wants to pack the milk in tins of equal capacity. What should be the capacity of each tin?

Answer :

For packing 150 litres of milk of higher fat and 240 litres of milk of lower fat in tins of equal capacity, we need to find the g. c. d of 150 and 240.

150 = 5 × 3 × 5 × 2


240 = 3 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5


Therefore, g. c. d(150, 240) = 5 × 3 × 2 = 30


So, the capacity of the tin should be 30 litres.
