Question

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=mathrm{HCF}(616,32) )
( mathrm{HCF}(616,32)=8 )
( Rightarrow quad n=8 )
Hence, the maximum number of the columns in which they can march ( =8 )
