Q. |
## If gcd (a, b) is defined by the expression, d=a*p + b*q where d, p, q are positive integers and a, b is both not zero, then what is the expression called? |

A. | bezout’s identity |

B. | multiplicative identity |

C. | sum of product |

D. | product of sum |

Answer» A. bezout’s identity | |

Explanation: if gcd (a, b) is defined by the expression, d=a*p + b*q where d, p, q are positive integers and a, b is both not zero, then the expression is called bezout’s identity and p, q can be calculated by extended form of euclidean algorithm. |
