Euclid’s Algorithm The Greatest Common Divisor(GCD) of two integers is defined as follows: An integer c is called the GCD(a,b) (read as the greatest common divisor of integers a and b) if the following 2 conditions hold: 1) c | a c | b 2) For any common divisor d of a and b, d | c. Rule 2 ensures that the divisor c is the greatest of all the common divisors of a and b. One way we could find the GCD of two integers is by trial and error. Another way is that we could prime factorize each integer, and from the prime factorization, see which factors are common between the two integers. However, both of these become very time consuming as soon as the integers are relatively large. However, Euclid devised a fairly simple and efficient algorithm to determine the GCD of two integers. The algorithm basically makes use of the division algorithm repeatedly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
