If a 100 by 104 rectangle is divided into unit squares, a diagonal line will pass through how many unit squares?

3 by 3 square diagonal passes through 3 squares. 3 by 6 diagonal passes through 6 squares. The answer is not 104.

Another way is to use a formula which is m+n-HCF(m,n)
m is one side (100)
n is the other side (104)
HCF is the highest common factor of the sides, in this case 4

Draw a 9 by 3 rectangle on a square grid. Draw one diagonal. How many squares does the diagonal pass through?
