Paper squares

The paper rectangle measuring 69 cm and 46 cm should be cut into as many squares as possible. Calculate the lengths of squares and their number.

Result

a =  23 cm
n =  6

Solution:

69=32346=223GCD(69,46)=23=23 a=23  cm 69 = 3 \cdot 23 \\ 46 = 2 \cdot 23 \\ \text{GCD}(69, 46) = 23 = 23\\ \ \\ a = 23 \ \text{ cm }
n=6946/a2=6n = 69\cdot 46/a^2 = 6



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
