Extended Euclidean algorithm

## Description

In arithmetic and computer programming, the extended Euclidean algorithm is an extension to the Euclidean algorithm, and computes, in addition to the greatest common divisor of integers a and b, also the coefficients of Bézout's identity, which are integers x and y such that ax+by=\gcd.
The extended Euclidean algorithm is the essential tool for computing multiplicative inverses in modular structures, typically the modular integers and the ...
The gcd of two integers can be found by repeated application of the division algorithm, this is known as the Euclidean Algorithm. You repeatedly divide the ...
