Euclid’s Algorithm is a method of finding the G.C.D of two positive integers.
The algorithm states that the G.C.D of two positive integers is the largest integer that divides both of them without leaving a remainder.
Hence, using the algorithm we have,
12576 = 4052 . 3 + 420
We shall proceed this way until we obtain the remainder as zero.
4052 = 420.9 + 272
420 = 272.1 + 148
272 =148.1 + 124
124 = 4.6 + 0
Hence we have obtained the remainder as zero.
This shows that the H.C.F of 4052 and 12576 is 4.
