An army contingen

Answer :

Suppose, both groups are arranged in 'n' columns, for completely filling each column,
The maximum no of columns in which they can march is the highest common factor of their number of members.
i.e. n = HCF(616, 32)

By using, Euclid’s division algorithm

616 = 32×19+8

Remainder ≠ 0

So, again Applying Euclid’s division algorithm

32 = 8×4+0

HCF of (616, 32) is 8.


They can march in 8 columns each.
