Rectangle 21663

A) Divide a rectangle measuring 126 cm x 72 cm into as many squares as possible.
b) Calculate the side length of these squares.

Correct answer:

n =  28
x =  18 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=126 cm b=72 cm  126=2327 72=2332 GCD(126,72)=232=18  x=GCD(a,b)=GCD(126,72)=18 cm  n=(a/x) (b/x)=(126/18) (72/18)=28
x=18=18 cm
