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 Python.
What’s The Approach?
- Let us consider
bto 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
abecomes zero we’ll return
- However, if that’s not the case then we’ll simply recursively
return b % a,that way we’ll get a gcd as output.

Python Program To Print HCF of Two Integers
a = 98, b = 56
HCF of 98 and 56 is 14
# Recursive function to return HCF of a and b def gcd(a,b): # Everything divides 0 if (b == 0): return a return gcd(b, a%b) # Driver program to test above function a = 98 b = 56 if(gcd(a, b)): print('HCF of', a, 'and', b, 'is', gcd(a, b)) else: print('not found')
