GCD( <Number>, <Number> )
Calculates the greatest common divisor of the two numbers .
Example:
GCD(12, 15) yields 3.
GCD( <List of Numbers> )
Calculates the greatest common divisor of the list of numbers.
Example:
GCD({12, 30, 18}) yields 6.


Note Hint: In the Menu view cas.svg CAS View you can also use the following syntax:
GCD( <Polynomial>, <Polynomial> )
Calculates the greatest common divisor of the two polynomials.
Example:
GCD(x^2 + 4 x + 4, x^2 - x - 6) yields x + 2.
GCD( <List of Polynomials> )
Calculates the greatest common divisor of the list of polynomials.
Example:
GCD({x^2 + 4 x + 4, x^2 - x - 6, x^3 - 4 x^2 - 3 x + 18}) yields x + 2.
