## Homework Statement

reduce the fraction [tex]\frac{943578}{1978935}[/tex] to its lowest terms using Euclid's algorithm

## The Attempt at a Solution

I start with finding the gcd of these two numbers using E.algorithm

1978935=943578*2+91779

942578=91779*10+25788

91779=25788*3+14415

25788=14415*1+11373

14415=11373*1+3042

11373=3042*3+2247

3042=2247*1+795

2247=795*2+657

795=657*1+138

657=138*4+105

138=105*1+33

105=33*3+6

33=6*5+3

6=2*3+0

so gcd(1978935,942578)=3

but here I am somehow unable to use it to reduce the fraction. Please help
