Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0WE CAN DO IT BY NUMBER THEORY METHOD. ONE WAY IS: SUBTRACT THE GREATER NO. BY THE SMALLER ONE . IN THIS CASE IT IS 7248. WHICH GIVES US 24. NOW THE NEW GREATER NO. BECOMES 48 (AS 72 HAS ALREADY BEEN REDUCED TO 24). SO SUBTRACT 24 FROM 48 i.e. 48 24 WHICH GIVES US 24. AS BOTH THE NUMBERS HAVE BEEN REDUCED TO THE SAME VALUE WE GET THE GCF AS 24.
