Example text

For g, h and k € G, (gh)k = g(hk) (associative law). 3. There exists a \G € G satisfying 1G<7 = 9^-G = 9 for all g € G. Henceforth, we shall write 1 for \Q if there is not danger of confusion. 4. For each g £ G there is g~l 6 G such that gg~l = g~1g = 1. We remark that the 1 and g"1 in the last two statements are unique. To see this, suppose ag = g for some a 6 G and all g € G. Taking g = 1 gives a l = 1. But a l = a. Thus, a — 1. Similarly, for g € G, if gh = 1, then multiplying by g - 1 gives g~l{gh) — g~x\.

Multiplying by the inverses (in Q) we reduce ourselves to a problem with index set of lower order. Just keep going by induction and, after reordering, get r = s and pi = qi for all i. In view of the uniqueness of the prime factorization of an integer n we can group the prime divisors and write n = p^1 • • • pekk, the e, being positive integers. Each ej is called the multiplicity with which the prime Pi occurs. 5. There are infinitely many primes. Proof. Suppose, to the contrary that there are only finitely many primes, {p\,...

By repeating this we a get triple which are pairwise relatively prime. We recall that multiples of a Pythagorean triple are also Pythagorean triples. If both a and b are even then c has to be even and this contradicts the assumption that they are relatively prime. If a and b both are odd then a2 + b2 = 2 mod(4) and c has to be even. But if c is even then c2 = 0mod(4). So it is impossible to have a2 + b2 = c 2 . 5 31 The Integers Revisited odd and the other one is even. Let a be odd and b be even.
