UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS MAT138H1 - INTRODUCTION TO PROOFS – FALL 2016 WEEK #8 (NOVEMBER 11) Part 2. More basics on “Number Theory”. - Topic: Greatest Common Divisor. - Definition. ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , we say that 𝑑𝑑 is a “common divisor” of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 if 𝑑𝑑 | 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑑𝑑 | 𝑏𝑏 . Recall: ∀𝑛𝑛 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , 𝑑𝑑 | 𝑛𝑛 ⇔ ( ∃𝑞𝑞 ∈ ℤ , 𝑛𝑛 = 𝑞𝑞𝑑𝑑 ) . Exercise: Prove or disprove each of the following statements: a) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) ⇒ �𝑑𝑑 |( 𝑎𝑎 + 𝑏𝑏 ) , b) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) ⇒ �𝑑𝑑 |( 𝑎𝑎𝑏𝑏 ) , c) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , �𝑑𝑑 |( 𝑎𝑎 + 𝑏𝑏 ) � ⇒ ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) , d) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , �𝑑𝑑 |( 𝑎𝑎𝑏𝑏 ) � ⇒ ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) , e) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) ⇒ �𝑑𝑑 ≤ max({ 𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 }) , f) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , (( 𝑎𝑎 ≠ 0 ∨ 𝑏𝑏 ≠ 0) ( 𝑑𝑑 common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 )) ⇒ �𝑑𝑑 ≤ max({| 𝑎𝑎 |, | 𝑏𝑏 |}) g) ∀𝑎𝑎 , 𝑏𝑏 , , 𝑘𝑘 ∈ ℤ , ∀𝑑𝑑 ∈ ℤ + , ( 𝑑𝑑 is a common divisor of 𝑎𝑎 and 𝑏𝑏 ) ⇒ �𝑑𝑑 |(

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
