Expert Answer
The greatest number of fruits possible in each heap is the HCF of the three numbers.
342 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 19
627 = 3 x 19 x 11
836 = 2 x 2 x 19 x 11
HCF(342, 627, 836) = 19
 
Now, 342 + 627 + 836 = 19(2 x 3 x 3 + 3 x 11 + 2 x 2 x 11) = 19(18 + 33 + 44) = 95
Thus, the number of heaps formed is 95.
