Python | math.gcd() function
In Python, math module contains a number of mathematical operations, which can be performed with ease using the module.
math.gcd() function compute the greatest common divisor of 2 numbers mentioned in its arguments.
Syntax: math.gcd(x, y)
x : Non-negative integer whose gcd has to be computed.
y : Non-negative integer whose gcd has to be computed.
Returns: An absolute/positive integer value after calculating the GCD of given parameters x and y.
Exceptions : When Both x and y are 0, function returns 0, If any number is a character, Type error is raised.
The gcd of 60 and 48 is : 12
math.gcd(44, 12) : 4 math.gcd(69, 23) : 5
Code #3: Explaining Exception.
The gcd of 0 and 0 is : 0 The gcd of a and 13 is : TypeError: 'str' object cannot be interpreted as an integer
