13. What is the greatest possible common divisor of two different positive integers that are less than 144?

I took too long answering this question that I chose the wrong answer. I was wondering if there is a shortcut for this.

Yes, it is 71, which can divide positive integers 142 and 71.

I guess the short cut here is to find greatest divisable by 2 number less then 144 so it's 142 and devide it by 2 to get highest common divisor .

Just picture similar question : What is the common largest divisor of 3 intergers that are each less then 144 . The answer is 47 for ( 47, 94, 141 )
