### Finding GCD of 36, 16, 26 using LCM Formula

Step1:

Let's calculate the GCD of first two numbers

The formula of GCD is GCD(a, b) = ( a x b) / LCM(a, b)

LCM(36, 16) = 144

GCD(36, 16) = ( 36 x 16 ) / 144

GCD(36, 16) = 576 / 144

GCD(36, 16) = 4

Step2:

Here we consider the GCD from the above i.e. 4 as first number and the next as 26

The formula of GCD is GCD(a, b) = ( a x b) / LCM(a, b)

LCM(4, 26) = 52

GCD(4, 26) = ( 4 x 26 ) / 52

GCD(4, 26) = 104 / 52

GCD(4, 26) = 2

GCD of 36, 16, 26 is 2
