Step 1
Consider the following information:
a=26,b=52,c=60
Greatest common divisor of 60 and 52:
$60=52×1+8$ ...(1)
$52=8×6+4$ ...(2)
$8=4×2+0$ ...(3)
Greatest common divisor of 60 and 52 is 4.
Greatest common divisor of 26 and 4:
$26=4×6+2$ ...(4)
$4=2×2+0$ ...(5)
Greatest common divisor of 26 and 4 is 2.
Step 2
From equation (4):
$2=26-4×6$
From equation (2):
$2=26\left(52-8×6\right)×6$
$2=26-52×6+8×36$
From equation (1):
$2=26-52×6+\left(60-52×1\right)×36$
$2=26-52×6+60×36-52×36$
2=26(1)+(-42)52+(36)60
Hence, the solution is x=1,y=-42, z=36.
