April 16 on Naked Juice

This is my favourite drink because it's yummy and its bottles have cool information I can use to challenge more able students.

What is the fewest number of bottles that can be obtained by using whole number of each of peach, orange, mango and apples?

In preparing two bottles, a peach and an orange are needed but only a third of a mango is used and half an apple got left over. So the number of fruits used are not all whole numbers. 

Notes to Parents 
If your child is advanced, refrain from accelerating him or her. In other words, it is less fruitful to move on to learn to multiply two-digit numbers if the child gets his times table easily than to have enrichment opportunities.

The above task is an enrichment task for advanced learners.
