(c) When an ISBN was copied, two adjacent digits were interchanged resulting in the number 1-18-397604-5. Determine the original ISBN. Problem 2 . A positive integer is divisible by 8 if and only if the three-digit integer formed by its nal three digits is divisible by 8. (You do not need to prove this.) Determine all pairs of digits ( a,b ) such that 72 b 9 a 2 is divisible by 88. Problem 3 . Use mathematical induction to show that 3 n 1+2 n 2 (mod 8) for all integers n 0. Problem 4 . Suppose that a,b Z and m,n P . Prove that an bn (mod mn ) if and only if a b (mod m ). 1...
