#### Q.08

'(1) Let $k ^ 3$ divided by $n$ have a quotient of $q$ and a remainder of $r$, then $k ^ 3 = qn + r (0≤r≤n-1)$ When $n$ and $k$ are coprime, $n$ and $k ^ 3$ are also coprime. Therefore, $r≠0$, so $1≤r≤n-1$ Dividing both sides of (1) by $n$ gives $\\frac{k ^ 3}{n} = q + \\frac{r}{n}$ From $1≤r≤n-1$, we know that $\\frac{1}{n}≤\\frac{r}{n}≤1-\\frac{1}{n}$. Therefore, 0 < $\\frac{r}{n}$ < 1, hence $\\left[\\frac{k ^ 3}{n}\\right] = \\left[q + \\frac{r}{n}\\right] = q$'

#### Q.09

'(2) Prove that for all k, k^m - k is divisible by d_m. [1] When k=1, 1^m - 1 = 0 and d_m ≠ 0, so 0 is divisible by d_m. Therefore, (1) holds. [2] Assuming that (1) holds for k=l, that is, l^m - l is divisible by d_m. Considering k=l+1, (l+1)^m - (l+1) ={m C_0 l^m + m C_1 l^(m-1) + m C_2 l^(m-2) + ... + m C_m - (l+1)} = {l^m - l} + {m C_1 l^(m-1) + m C_2 l^(m-2) + ... + m C_m-1 l} From the assumption, l^m - l is divisible by d_m. Also, d_m is the greatest common divisor of {m C_1, m C_2, ..., m C_(m-1)}, so these terms are also divisible by d_m. Therefore, (l+1)^m - (l+1) is divisible by d_m. Hence, when k=l+1, (1) also holds. From [1], [2], it can be concluded that (1) holds for all natural numbers k.'

#### Q.13

'In exercise 55 (1) [1], when m=2, d_2 is the largest natural number that divides the binomial coefficient {2 C_1} = 2, so d_2=2, and d_m=m holds true. [2] When m is a prime number greater than or equal to 3, {m C_1} = m, therefore it is sufficient to show that {m C_2, m C_3, ..., m C_m - 1} are multiples of m. For k=2,3,…,m-1, {m C_k} = (m!) / (k!(m-k)!) = (m/k) * ((m-1)! / (k-1)!(m-k)!) = (m/k) * {m-1 C_k-1} thus, k * {m C_k} = m * {m-1 C_k-1}. Since m is a prime number greater than or equal to 3, and 2 ≤ k ≤ m-1, k and m are coprime. Hence, {m C_k} is a multiple of m. Therefore, d_m=m holds true. From [1], [2], if m is a prime number, then d_m=m.'

#### Q.15

'(3) \ m, n \ are natural numbers, and \ p \ is a prime number, so \ m, n, p \ are non-zero real numbers. Therefore, from (1), we have \ \\frac{1}{m} + \\frac{1}{n} = \\frac{1}{p} \. Also, in the equation \ a^{m} = b^{n} \, where \ 1 < a < b \, we have\ a^{m} = b^{n} > a^{n} \\text { which implies } a^{m} > a^{n} \\\\\\\The base \ a \ is greater than 1, so \ m > n \. Thus, from (2), we get \ m = p^{2} + p, n = p + 1 \, and therefore\\[ a^{p^{2} + p} = b^{p + 1} = (a b)^{p} \\]\\\\'

'I\'m confused about how to approach prime number problems. The definition of prime numbers, "Integers greater than 2 that have no positive divisors other than 1 and themselves," is simple. The key is how to use this definition effectively. First, let\'s understand the following properties (1) and (2): (1) The divisors of a prime number p are ±1 and ±p (there are 2 positive divisors: 1 and p), (2) Prime numbers are greater than 2, and the only even prime number is 2. Additionally, all prime numbers greater than 3 are odd. By using the property that "the divisors of prime number p are ±1 and ±p", we can consider four cases (A) to (D) for when (n-3)(n-9) is a prime number p. Pay attention to the relationship n-9<n-3 and 1<p,-p<-1, where only (B) n-9=1 and (C) n-3=-1 are possible. In particular, be careful of mistakes like n-9=-1 in negative cases.'

'Euclidean algorithm\nFor natural numbers a and b, if a is divided by b and the remainder is r, then the greatest common divisor of a and b is equal to the greatest common divisor of b and r.\nBy repeatedly using this method, we can find the greatest common divisor of two natural numbers. This method is called the Euclidean algorithm or simply the division algorithm.\nFor example, finding the greatest common divisor of 319 and 143\nBy observing the division of 319 by 143 resulting in the equation 319=143*2+33, according to the theorem, instead of finding the greatest common divisor of 319 and 143, we can find the greatest common divisor of the divisor 143 and the remainder 33. Continuing this operation, the remainders will decrease. Moreover, since the remainder is greater than or equal to 0, eventually the remainder will become 0. When the remainder becomes 0, the divisor at that step is the desired greatest common divisor.'

'Since (3k + 1)(3k + 2) is the product of two consecutive integers, it is a multiple of 2. Therefore, it can be expressed as (3k + 1)(3k + 2) = 2l, and (p + 1)(p + 2)(p + 3) = 24l(2k + 1). As p, p + 1, p + 2, p + 3, p + 4 are five consecutive integers, one of them is a multiple of 5. If we let p = 5, then p + 4 = 9, which is not a prime number, leading to p + 4 not being prime, hence p > 5, so p, p + 4 are prime numbers greater than 5, hence not multiples of 5. Therefore, one of p + 1, p + 2, p + 3 is a multiple of 5. Therefore, (p + 1)(p + 2)(p + 3) is a multiple of 5. By 2 and 3, (p + 1)(p + 2)(p + 3) is a multiple of 24, hence a multiple of 120.'
