Expert Answer:

We have to find the maximum number of column in which an army contigent of 616 memebers march behind a band of 32 members.

Maximum number of columns = HCF (616,32)

Using Euclid's division algorithm,

616 = 32 x 19 + 8

32 = 8 x 4 + 0

So, the HCF (616,32) = 8

Therefore, they can march in 8 columns.
