The King

The King wants to divide his sons equally. He has 42 rubies and 45 diamonds. How many sons and how will they share them?

Result

n =  3
r =  14
d =  15

Solution:

42=237 45=325 GCD(42,45)=3  n=GCD(42,45)=342=2 \cdot 3 \cdot 7 \ \\ 45=3^2 \cdot 5 \ \\ \text{GCD}(42, 45)=3 \ \\ \ \\ n=GCD(42,45)=3
r=42/n=42/3=14r=42/n=42/3=14
d=45/n=45/3=15d=45/n=45/3=15



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!
