# Shannon is collecting art supplies. She has 48 crayons, 24 markers, and 16 stickers.

1 of 2

Find how many art supplies are there in a group by type:

• For the crayons, there are $\frac{48}{8}=6$ crayons per group.
• For the markers, there are $\frac{24}{6}=4$ markers per group.
• For the stickers, there are $\frac{16}{4}=4$ stickers per group.

$\color{white}\tag{1}$

Since Shannon's brother gets a group from each type of art supplies, then he got a total of:

$6+4+4=\color{#c34632}14\text{ art supplies}$
