# 7. Three tankers contain 403 litres, 434 litres and 465 litres of diesel respectively. Find the maximum capacity of a container that can measure the diesel of the three containers exact number of times.

P Pankaj Sanodiya

Maximum capacity of the required tanker =HCF of 403,434,465

403=13 $\times$ 31

434=2 $\times$ 7 $\times$ 31

465=3 $\times$ 5 $\times$ 31

HCF=31

Hence the maximum capacity of a container that can measure the diesel of the three containers the exact number of times is 31.
