Given two positive numbers x and y. Find the maximum valued integer a such that:
- a divides x i.e. x % a = 0
- a and y are co-prime i.e. gcd(a, y) = 1
Input : x = 15 y = 3 Output : a = 5 Explanation: 5 is the max integer which satisfies both the conditions. 15 % 5 =0 gcd(5, 3) = 1 Hence, output is 5. Input : x = 14 y = 28 Output : a = 1 Explanation: 14 % 1 =0 gcd(1, 28) = 1 Hence, output is 1.
Approach: Here, first we will remove the common factors of x and y from x by finding the greatest common divisor (gcd) of x and y and dividing x with that gcd.
x = x / gcd(x, y) —— STEP1
Now, we repeat STEP1 till we get gcd(x, y) = 1.
At last, we return a = x
