# Three tankers contain 403 litres, 434 litres and 465 litres of diesel respectively. Find the maximum capacity of a container that can measure the diesel of the three containers exact number of times.

Answer :

Maximum capacity of the required tanker = HCF of 403, 434 and 465

403 = 13 × 31

434 = 2 × 7 × 31

465 = 3 × 5 × 31

HCF = 31

So, the container of capacity 31 litres can measure the diesel of 3 containers exact number of times.
