ALS ola An army contingent of 616 members is to march behind an army band of 32 members in a parade. The two groups are to march in the same number of columns. What is the maximum number of columns in which they can march? S ad 1 1 1 BA

Solution The number n of the columns should be selected in such a way that the value of n be maximum and it must divide both the numbers, i.e., 616 and 32. So, n=HCF (616,32). HCF (616, 32)=8 > n=8 Hence, the maximum number of the columns in which they can march=8.
