lecture section. 2. Questions are to be answered in the space provided. Give REASONS for your answers (except in Question
10) and show all your work required to obtain your answers. If the space is insufﬁcient, use the back or the
blank page at the end, and indicate where your work continues. 3. There are 13 pages in this examination, including a blank page at the end. Check that you have all the pages.
Write your name at the top of each page. 4. Non—programmable calculators are permitted for calculation only. You should show your intermedicate steps.
Use of prestored information is cheating. For Marker Only 1. (a) Find the complete integer solution to the Diophantine equation 123:1: — 216g 2 39. (b) List those solutions to the Diophantine equation in part (a) for which 1* and y are both positive integers
satisfying :8 + y g 300. 2. (a) State Fermat’s Little Theorem. (b) Find all the integer solutions of the congruence x11 + 71' E 18(m0d77). 3. Solve the following system of linear congruences.
:c E 12(mod 20)
a: E 11(mod 39) 4. Let a sequence be deﬁned by $1 = 10, x2 = 16, and 1B,, : 313n_1  213,14 for n 2 3.
Prove that In : 4 + 3(2")
for all positive integers n. 5. (a) In an RSA cryptosystem suppose that the public key is (e, n) : (7, 143). Find the private key.
(b) Find the ciphertext when the message M = 103 is encrypted using the public (7, 143). 6. (a) Suppose a, b, c are positive integers and GC'D(b, c) = 1.
Prove: If a5b+ c and a6b + c then a = 1. (b) Let a and b be nonzero integers, and let (1 = GCD(a, b). Prove that GCD(%, RIO‘ )=1. 7. (a) Write the complex number — @040 in the standard form x + yi. (b) Solve the equation 2 = 22 for z E (C, and plot your solutions in the Argand diagram. (You can give your
answers in standard form or polar form). 8. (a) Give a careful statement (Without proof) of the Rational Roots Theorem.
(b) Find all the rational roots of = 4x4 — 2233 —— CL‘\— 1. 9. (a) Prove: Theorem: If c is a complex number that is a root of a polynomial f whose coefﬁcients are
real, then the complex conjugate 6 is also a root. (b) Find all the roots of = x6 + 16183 + 64 in (C.
(c) Factor f : £86 + 162:3 + 64 into irreducible polynomials in (d) Factor f = 9:6 + 167:3 + 64 into irreducible polynomials in Z7[:1:], where the coefﬁcients in f are considered as elements of Z7. 10. For each of the following pair of statements, tick in the boxes whether they are equivalent or not. In (d) and
