Print HCF of Two Integers in C++

Computations and programming when combined make a very deadly combination. As the ability to solve complex mathematical questions in itself is a great deal. But when one has to do the same thing by writing up a code, things get somewhat more complicated. Not to mention the language your coding in also determines whether it’s going to be easy to difficult. So today we’re going to write a program to print HCF of Two Integers in C++.


What’s The Approach? 


  • Let us consider a and b to be the two Integers to find HCF of.


  • Firstly we’ll find the gcd of these two numbers, i.e, using a condition where if a becomes zero we’ll return b


  • However, if that’s not the case then we’ll simply recursively return b % a, that way we’ll get a gcd as output.

C++ Program To Print HCF of Two Integers




a = 98, b = 56




HCF of 98 and 56 is 14


// C++ program to find HCF of two numbers

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
// Recursive function to return HCF of a and b
int gcd(int a, int b)
    if (b == 0)
        return a;
    return gcd(b, a % b);

// Driver program to test above function
int main()
    int a = 98, b = 56;
    cout<<"HCF of "<<a<<" and "<<b<<" is "<<gcd(a, b);
    return 0;
