This is my day 54th of #100DaysOfcode and #python learning. Like yesterday today also continue to learn more about an algorithm. I studied greedy algorithm, implement and analyzed the greedy algorithm, efficient algorithm for grouping children and car fueling in Algorithmic Toolbox
Also learned more properties of SQL including selecting multiple columns from a table, select distinct, use of count, where and, etc From datacamp
Tried to write some efficient algorithm to calculate Fibonacci number, LCM, HCF as a homework assignment of Coursera.

Algorithm to find LCM of two number

def compute_gcd(a,b):
    while(b):
        a, b = b , a % b
    return a
def lcm(a,b):
    lcm = (a*b)//compute_gcd(a,b)
    return lcm

a,b = map(int,input().split())
print(lcm(a,b))

Above code run fast and its outcome is,

You have written different versions of this function...
