1. You were asked to find gcd(1020, 354) but you have calculated gcd(1020, 352).
2. Correct.
Find the greatest common divisor of a and b for the following and express it in the form am+bn
1) a = 1020 and b = 354
2) a = 2940 and b = 714
Here's what I've got and can someone check the answers:
1) 1020 = (10)(102) = (2)(5)(51)(2) = (2)(5)(17)(3)(2)
352 = (2)(176) = (2)(2)(88) = (2)(2)(2)(2)(2)(11)
Greatest common divisor: (2)(2) = 4
2) 2940 = (10)(294) = (2)(5)(2)(147) = (2)(5)(2)(7)(21) = (2)(5)(2)(7)(7)(3)
714 = (7)(102) =(7)(51)(2) = (7)(17)(3)(2)
Greatest common divisor: (7)(3)(2) = 42

Is that all that needs to be done? I'm not sure what it means by "express it in the form am+bn".
