    So start will 2 but 2 doesn't go into 21, so try 3 but 3 doesn't go into 14 and keep going up until you get the answer. To make sure it's the greatest you can check until the lowest number there which in this case is 14 but 14 doesn't go into 21 or 24 so it isn't it. I was just asking in case you were at uni and wanted to use the Euclidean algorithm. That's all :)
