4.1.2: Prove that if a is a non-zero integer, then:
(a) 1 divides a.
Proof. Let a Z cfw_0. Then a = 1 a, and therefore 1|a.
(b) a divides 0.
Proof. Again, let a Z cfw_0. Then, 0 = a 0, and therefore a|0.

1.8.14: Prove or disprove that if a and b are rational numbers, then ab is also rational.
Proof. This statement is false. Let a = 2 and b = 1 . Then, a and b are both rational,
and ab = 2 2 = 2 which we have
