## Divisibility and the Euclidean Algorithm

Divisibility To better understand divisibility I want to ask a question. Does a|bc imply a|b or a|c? The answer is no. A few counterexamples would be 6|4*3 but the following are not true 6|4 and 6|3.

Abstract Algebra Hungerford Section 1.1: The Division Algorithm Summary: Division is the repeated subtraction of a number there is a remaining value that is less than the number. This is idea is formally presented with the Division Algorithm

Hello World! I am a senior at Brigham Young University (BYU) studying physics. I’ve taken math classes up to Ordinary Differential Equations and here I start my study of Abstract Algebra (I will study Hungerford’s 3rd edition of his book entitled Introduction to Abstract Algebra). I realized a year ago that understanding physics well requires a firm …
