GCD_ADD

Returns the greatest common divisor of two or more integers.

This function is only available if the Analysis AddIn is installed.

Syntax:

GCD_ADD(integer1; integer2; ... integer30)

integer1 to integer30 are up to 30 integers or ranges of integers whose greatest common divisor is to be calculated.
The greatest common divisor (or highest common factor) is the largest positive integer which will divide, without remainder, each of the given integers.

Example:

GCD_ADD(16; 32; 24)

returns 8, because 8 is the largest number that can divide 16, 24 and 32 without a remainder.

GCD_ADD(B1:B3)

where cells B1, B2, and B3 contain 9, 12, and 6 returns 3.

GCD_ADD(3; 5)

returns 1.

Issues:

The ODFF international standardisation of the GCD / GCD_ADD functions will allow both functions to produce precisely the same results.
