Expert Answer:

 HYCF of 408 and  1032 . applying Euclid's  division lemma on 408 and 1032

we get ,  1032 = 408 x 2 + 216

                 408= 216 x 1 + 192

                  216 = 192 x 1 +24

                   192 = 24 x 8 + 0

Therefore HCF of 408 and 1032 is 24

    24 = 1032 p - 408 x 5

     1032 p = 2064 + 24

   p = 2064 / 1032 = 2

  value of p is 2
