Cutting paper

Divide a rectangular paper with dimensions 220mm and 308mm into squares of the same size so that they are as large as possible. Specify the length of the side of the square.

Correct answer:

x =  44 mm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=220 mm b=308 mm 220=22511 308=22711 GCD(220,308)=2211=44  x=GCD(a,b)=GCD(220,308)=44 mm
