A container can measure 616 liters of petrol an exact number of times if its capacity in liters is a divisor of 616. Also to measure 32 liters of petrol the capacity in liters must also be divisor of 32.
Therefore , the maximum capacity of the container is the GCF of 616 and 32 in liters.
(use any method to find GCF)
Let us use Euclid’s algorithm, to find the
616 = 32 x 19 + 8
32 = 8 x 4 + 0
So the GCF of 616 and 32 is 8.
So the capacity of the container = 8 liters.
