Hot dog buns at the local store come in packages of 6, while hot...

Hot dog buns at the local store come in packages of 6, while hot dogs themselves come in packages

common factor or the least common multiple, or both concepts?
b) Devise two distinct methods to find out how much Lisa must buy of each. How do the methods
