GCD of two numbers in PL/SQL

Prerequisite PL/SQL introduction
In PL/SQL code groups of commands are arranged within a block. A block group related declarations or statements. In declare part, we declare variables and between begin and end part, we perform the operations.

Given two numbers and task is to find the GCD (Greatest Common Divisor) or HCF (Highest Common Factor) value of the numbers.
Examples:

Input:  num1 = 4, num2 = 6
Output: gcd of (num1, num2) = 2

Input: num1 = 8, num2 = 48
Output: gcd of (num1, num2) = 8

Approach is to take two numbers and find their GCD value using Euclidean algorithm.

DECLARE 
  
    -- declare variable num1, num2 and t 
    -- and these three variables datatype are integer  
    num1 INTEGER
    num2 INTEGER
    t    INTEGER
BEGIN 
    num1 := 8; 
  
    num2 := 48; 
  
    WHILE MOD(num2, num1) != 0 LOOP 
        t := MOD(num2, num1); 
  
        num2 := num1; 
  
        num1 := t; 
    END LOOP; 
  
    dbms_output.Put_line('GCD of ' 
                         ||num1 
                         ||' and ' 
                         ||num2 
                         ||' is ' 
                         ||num1); 
END
  
-- Program End

Output :

GCD of 8 and 48 is 8
