Is c relatively prime to (n.p)? 2007-03-02
From Andrew:
Please could you help me with a small mathematics problem?! I've put = the problem into three parts but it isn't really three problems; just = one! Given:- {[(n.p)^p] / [c + (n.p)]} =3D "an integer" (where c > = (n.p); c and n are integers, n is even and p is an odd prime number) Can one prove that c cannot be relatively prime to (n.p)? { i.e. c = must have the factor (n.p) ?} If so, is the converse also true? {i.e. If c is relatively prime to = (n.p), then [c + (n.p)] cannot be a factor of (n.p)^p ?} Lastly but similarly, if c is relatively prime to a and c > a > = (n.p) ; (c - a) > (n.p) **; and c is not relatively prime to (n.p) = would it be true that (c - a) cannot be a factor (n.p)^p ? I hope my question makes sense?

Two number theory questions 2001-01-30
From Richie:
i have two questions and they are:
  1. the product of three consecutive prime numbers is 7429. Find the product of the smallest and largest of these three integers.

  2. the least common multiple of two relatively prime positive integers, a and b, is 144. if a (a>or=2) is as small as possible, compute the value of b.
