COP 3275 C Language Special Notes #3 Details about Euclidean Algorithm Euclidean Algorithm is used to compute the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two positive integers. The process is like this: Let and be the two numbers, and . Compute the remainder when is divided by . Copy into and copy the remainder into . If is 0, then stop and contains the GCD. Otherwise, repeat this process. For more details, please refer to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euclidean_algorithm

Unformatted text preview: Here is the pseudo code for Euclidean Algorithm: 1. Initialize integer m and n 2. Do: m / n , and save remainder 3. Do: m = n, n = remainder 4. If n = 0, end and return m as the GCD 5. Else: repeat step 2 ~ 4 Once you calculated the GCD, divide the numerator and denominator of the original fraction by their GCD, and this will give you the lowest term of the fraction.

    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.
