Number theory

Need help please

do you know how to do number theory?

Please let me know as soon..

Group A: (Please answer five questions only.) (10 points each: 50 total]
1. Prove that if gcd(a, b) = 1 and ged(a, c) = 1, then god(a, bc) = 1.
(You may use only the material from chapters 2-6 of our workbook and textbook)
2. Prove that if a positive integer n has k distinct odd prime factors, then 2*|®(n).
(You may use only the material from chapters 2-11 of our workbook and textbook)
3. (a) Given that the congruence 71734250 = 1660565 (mod 1734251) is true, can you make
any conclusion about the primality (or not) of 1734251?
(b) Given that the congruence 252632 = 1 (mod 52633) is true, can you make any con-
clusion about the primality (or not) of 64027?
(You conclusions can be based only on the given information.)
4. Let p be a prime number (P + 2 and p + 5) and let A be some given number. Suppose
that p divides the number A² – 5. Show that p must be congruent to either 1 or 4
modulo 5.
5. A farmer bought 21 birds for a total of $163. The birds are of three types: chickens,
ducks, and geese. The chickens cost $3 each, the ducks cost $5 each, and the geese
cost $13 each. If the farmer bought at least 4 chickens, and at least as many geese as
chickens, then how many of each type of bird did the farmer buy?
Note: The correct answer alone will receive only 6 points credit. To receive full credit,
you must prove that your solution is the only possible solution.
(Hint: Solve this problem using the techniques for solving linear Diophantine equations presented in
Chapter 6. Because the total number of birds bought is know, one can reduce this problem to a linear
Diophantine equation in two variables.)
