H.C.F. of 100, 150 and 200 is as,

Therefore, H.C.F.=

Now,the number of carnations used in each bunch = 100/50 = 2

and, number of tulips used in each bunch = 150/50 = 3

and, number of lilies used in each bunch = 200/50 = 4

So, Total number of carnations, tulips and lilies used in each bunch = 2+3+4 = 9

Hence,, She used 9 flowers in each bunch.
