**Reiny**, Monday, September 22, 2008 at 8:39pmlet each side of the largest square be x cm

so along the long side we can fit 84/x squares and along the short side we can fit 56/x squares

56 = 7*4*2 = 28*2

84 = 7*4*3 = 28*3

since 28 is the largest whole number that divides into both 56 and 84, the largest square is

28 x 28 cm.

(there will be 6 of these)

check: 6(28x28) = 4704

56x84 = 4704
