Two pieces

Two pieces of cloth 15 and 20 meters long are to be cut into small pieces of equal lengths. What will be the greatest length of each piece?

Correct answer:

x =  500 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

a=15 m cm=15 100  cm=1500 cm b=20 m cm=20 100  cm=2000 cm  1500=22353 2000=2453 GCD(1500,2000)=2253=500  x=GCD(a,b)=GCD(1500,2000)=500 cm
