The length, breadth, and height of a room are 825 cm, 675 cm, and 450 cm respectively. Find the longest tape which can measure the three dimensions of the room exactly.

Answer :

Length of the room = 825 cm


Breadth of the room = 675 cm


Height of the room = 450 cm


Longest tape = HCF of 825, 675 and 450


825 = 3 × 5 × 5 × 11


675 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5


450 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 5 × 5


HCF = Product of common factors = 3 × 5 × 5 = 75 cm


Therefore, the longest tape = 75 cm
