The teacher has some apples to distribute to her students. If she

gives all of the apples to the 13 students in her first class she will

have 4 left. If she gives all of the apples to the 29 students in her

second class she will have 9 left. If she gives all of the apples to

the 37 students in her third class she will have 16 left. Whichever

class she gives the apples to, she will give each student the same

number of apples. What is the smallest number of apples the teacher

can have?
