Solution

Number of cartons of coke cans = 144

Number of cartons of pepsi cans = 90

∴ The greatest number of cartons in one stock = HCF of 144 and 90

By applying Euclid’s division lemma

144 = 90 × 1 + 54

90 = 54 × 1 + 36

54 = 36 × 1 + 18

36 = 18 × 2 + 0

∴ HCF = 18

Hence the greatest number cartons in one stock = 18
