Introduction

In this article I describe how to determine the Highest Common Factor (HCF) using mathematical rules. I think everyone understands the concept of HCF in mathematics. In this article I will determine the HCF of two numbers in a programing language. Before going in depth, let us first instead ensure that the concept of HCF is understood.

HCF is also called a Greatest Common Factor that is determined by two methods in math, they are:

1. Repeated Division method
2. Prime Factorization method

For example:

24 = 2* 2*2*3

60=2*2*3*5

Ans= 2*2*3=12

Now find the HCF through programing.

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.ComponentModel;

using System.Data;

using System.Drawing;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace gcd_finder

{

public partial class Form1 : Form

{

public Form1()

{

InitializeComponent();

}

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

{

int num = int.Parse(textBox1.Text);

int num1 = int.Parse(textBox2.Text);

int gcd = findgcd(num, num1);

label1.Text = gcd.ToString();

}

int findgcd(int x, int y)

{

while (x != y)

{

if (x > y)

{

return findgcd(x - y, y);

}

else

{

return findgcd(x, y - x);

}

}

return x;

}

}

}
