Example text

This implies that k ≤ d. Therefore, d = gcd(a, b). In the proof above, we showed that d was the greatest common divisor of a and b by first showing that d was a common divisor of a and b, and then arguing that any other common divisor k would also have to be a divisor of d. This allowed us to conclude that d was the largest of all of the common divisors of a and b. The next theorem formalizes this reasoning by stating an equivalent, and in some ways preferable, form of the definition of greatest common divisor.

Choosing m = b is particularly convenient, since b − ab = b(1 − a) ≥ 0. Thus, x = b − ab ∈ S. ) In either case, whether b ≥ 0 or b < 0, we have shown that S contains at least one element. 16 Investigation 2. Divisibility of Integers The set S is therefore a nonempty subset of the whole numbers, and so the Well-Ordering Principle allows us to conclude that S has a least element. Knowing that we want this least element to be our remainder, we will call it r. Furthermore, since r ∈ S, we can find an integer, say q, for which r = b − aq.

Let n be a natural number, and let a and b be integers. Then a ≡ b (mod n) if and only if a and b yield the same remainder when divided by n. 10. 11. Let n be a natural number, and let a and b be integers. (a) Use the Division Algorithm to write equations (together with the appropriate inequalities) that represent the result of dividing each of a and b by n. For convenience, use q1 , q2 , r1 , r2 to denote the resulting quotients and remainders. (b) If you haven’t already done so, write your equations from part (a) so that they are in the form a = .
