3. Given any three integers a, b 9 c, consider the equation ax + by = c. Develop a criterion for whether this equation has integer solutions for x and y. Show that one can effectively determine all the integer solutions of this equa­ tion. 4. For / ( jc), g(x) € Q[x] (not both identically 0), define a greatest common divisor of f(x ) and g(x), denoted by ( /( jc), g(jt)), to be a polynomial d( jc), such that (a) d(x) divides both / ( jc) and g(jc), and (b) if h(x) divides both / ( jc) and g(jc), then h(x) divides d(x).

It is easily seen that a positive integer n is fcth-powerfree if and only if the only fcth power that divides it is 1. As a kind of antithesis to squarefree integers, one has the notion of squareful integers. 1) a, > 2, i = 1, . . , r. 1), m = f ] p ? k. ', each ft,, i = 1, . . ,s, is divisible by k. This type of characterization can be quite critical in carrying out a proof. 1. 1. If the integer A > 0 is not a kth power, then ^¡/A is irrational. Proof. Assume the assertion false, that is, ^¡/a is rational.
