## Answers ( )

Given 4 ribbons are measuring 14m, 18m, 22m and 26m respectively.

The length of each piece is obtained by HCF of 14, 18, 22 and 26

Factors of 14: 1, 2, 7, 14

Factors of 18: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9, 18

Factors of 22: 1, 2, 11, 22

Factors of 26: 1, 2, 13, 26

Hence the HCF is 2

The minimum length of each piece is 2 cm
