Write the following story on the board.

Nine hundred people were divided into teams. If there were always the same number of people on all teams, what do you know about the number of possible teams and the number of members on each team?

- If a team must contain more than 1 person then the smallest team could have 2 members, and there would be 450 two-member teams.
- There could be teams of 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 15, 18, and other numbers.
- There could be 30 teams with 30 team members.
- There could also be 45 teams of 20.
- 900 can be divided evenly many ways!
