Java Guava | gcd(int a, int b) method of IntMath Class

The method gcd(int a, int b) of Guava’s IntMath class returns the greatest common divisor of a, b.

Syntax :

public static int gcd(int a, int b)

Where a and b are integers.

Return Value : Greatest common divisor of integers a and b.

Exceptions : The method gcd(int a, int b) throws IllegalArgumentException if a < 0 or b < 0.

class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        int a1 = 64;
        int b1 = 36;
  
        // Using gcd(int a, int b) method
        // of Guava's IntMath class
        int ans1 = IntMath.gcd(a1, b1);
  
        System.out.println("GCD of a1 & b1 is: "
                           + ans1);
  
        int a2 = 23;
        int b2 = 15;
  
        // Using gcd(int a, int b) method
        // of Guava's IntMath class
        int ans2 = IntMath.gcd(a2, b2);
  
        System.out.println("GCD of a2 & b2 is: "
                           + ans2);
    }
}

Output:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: a (-5) must be >= 0

Note: The method returns 0 if a == 0 && b == 0.
