### Numeric CAS Part 6: Euclid Algorithm to find GCD (Greatest Common Divisor)

Euclid Algorithm

Goal: To find the greatest common divisor of two integers U and V.

The Algorithm in Brief:

Let U ≥ V. Then U = A * V + R where A is the quotient and R is the remainder. If R≠0, then V becomes the new U, and R becomes the new V. The process repeats until you R=0. When that happens, V_last = GCD(U,V).

The program allows for you two enter integers in any order. Each program uses the home screen to display the steps, but the HP 39gii displays all the steps on one screen.

Example: gcd(166, 78)

166 = 2 * 78 + 10
78 = 7 * 10 + 8
10 = 1 * 8 + 2
8 = 4 * 2 + 0
GCD = 2

gcd(169,39)

169 = 4 * 39 + 13
39 = 3 * 13 + 0
GCD = 13
