Weekly Maths Problem
Sam and Tommy are helping the school librarian to re-shelve books, after World Book Day, in the school library. Sam puts 24 infant books on a shelf, whereas Tommy can only fit 16 junior books on a shelf. If they end up shelving the same number of books, what is the smallest number of books each could have shelved?
