Answer :

Milk in three containers = 27L, 36L, 72L

Biggest measure which can exactly measure the milk = HCF (27, 36, 72)



27 = 33


36 = 22 × 32


72 = 23 × 32


Here, 32 is the smallest power of the common factor of the prime 3


HCF (27, 36, 72) = 9


So, biggest measure which can exactly measure the milk = 9L
