1702 and 1998.

So, now that greatest common number divides both 1702 and 1998 completely. Now find that common number, and that common greatest number is called HCF [Highest Common Factor]. THe HCF of 1702 and 1998 is 74.

So 74 divides 1702 and 1998 COMPLETELY.

Now, we can check if we got the answer. If we add 48 extra to 1702 and 2 extra to 1998, we get remainder 48 and 2 resp. [both 48 and 2 < 74].

So thats the answer with explanation.
