Euclid Algorithm

Learn how to write code to find the GCD using Euclid's algorithm.

Euclid’s algorithm is one of the oldest algorithms still relevant today, not only in discrete mathematical conceptions but also in the computational world of 1s and 0s.

About a thousand years ago, Greek mathematicians used Euclid’s algorithm to find the greatest common divisors of two numbers. Originally, it was subtraction based; later, the same algorithm was written in numerous ways, remodeling the original one.
