1. a) 180 cm
b)  3 columns and 4 rows.
Step-by-step explanation:
One side must be multiples of 45 and other side 60 and both sides should be equal.
i.e. 45 columns = 60 Rows
//Find the GCF.
GCF of 45, 60 = 15.
So for 3 columns of one side, you will need have 4 rows of other side to make the lengths equal
the least square of side that can be formed = 45*4 = 60*3 = 180cm
b) the number of rows and columns to form the desk would be 4 rows and 3 columns
