Section 4.2 (b) We have 260 1 154 0 106 1 48 -1 10 3 8 -13 2 16 0 1 -1 2 -5 22 -27 and so gcd(154, 260) = 2 = 16(260) + (-27)(154). Multiplying by 2, 4 = 32(260) + (-54)(154): x = -54, y = 32. 79 (c) [BB] Consider the possibility that 154x + 260y = 3 for certain integers x and y. The left side of this equation is even while the right side is odd, a contradiction. (d) Suppose we have 196x + 260y = 14 for some integers x and y. Since the left side is divisible by 4, the right side would have to be divisible by 4, which is not the case. 18. (a) [BB] We know that gcd(x, y) I x and gcd(x, y) I y and so gcd(x, y) I (mx + ny) (Proposi- tion 4.2.3). (b) Yes, it is true. Assume gcd(x, y) I d so that d = i(gcd(x, y)) for some integer i. By Theo- rem 4.2.9, there are integers s and t such that gcd(x, y) = sx + ty. Hence, d = isx + tty, and m = is, n = it will work. 19. (a) Take x = -6, y = 9, for example. (b) Suppose7x+5y = 3. Since 7(-6)+5(9) = 3aswell,subtractinggives 7(x+6)+5(y-9) = O. Since 717(x + 6), so also 715(y - 9). Since the integers 5 and 7 are relatively prime, we must have 71 y - 9, so y - 9 = 7k for some integer k. Thus y = 9 + 7k and 7(x + 6) = -5(y - 9) = -5(7k), so x + 6 = -5k and x = -6 - 5k.

### 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.
