Given two integer x and y, the task is to find the HCF of the numbers without using recursion or Euclidean method.
Input: x = 16, y = 32
Input: x = 12, y = 15
Approach: HCF of two numbers is the greatest number which can divide both the numbers. If the smaller of the two numbers can divide the larger number then the HCF is the smaller number. Else starting from (smaller / 2) to 1 check whether the current element divides both the numbers . If yes, then it is the required HCF.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
