    The least possible number of yellow marbles is 12 while the maximum possible number is 16.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total marbles: 20

    The are more yellow than blue.The GCF is 4.

    The numbers less than 20 with greatest common factor (GCF) of 4 or multiple of 4 are:

    4, 8, 12, 16

    Pick two possible combinations of multiples of 4 whose sum is 20 and there are more yellow than blue:

    16 yellow and 4 blue   ⇒  16 + 4 = 2012 yellow and 8 blue  ⇒  12 + 8 = 20The least possible number of yellow marbles is 12 while the maximum possible number is 16.
