The `math.gcd()` function in Python returns the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of two or more integers. The GCD is the largest positive integer that divides all of the given numbers without leaving a remainder.

## Syntax

``````math.gcd(*integers)
``````
• `*integers`: This represents the integers for which to compute the GCD.

## Example

The example below uses the `math.gcd()` function to return the greatest common divisor of the specified integers:

```import math
# GCD of two integers.print(math.gcd(54, 24))
# GCD of more than two integers.print(math.gcd(54, 108, 216))
# GCD of zero and non-zero integers.print(math.gcd(54, 0))
```

The output of the example code above is:

```65454
```

Note: If `math.gcd()` function is called with no arguments or if all arguments are zero (`0`), it will return zero (`0`).
