The smallest number that is divisible by 2, 3, and 4 is 12, so the number of guests must be a multiple of 12. Is 12 guests the correct answer? if so then
and only 13 bowls would be required so this is not the correct number of guests. The next smallest multiple of 12 is 24 so is 24 guests the correct answer? What about 36? Penny
