HW #3 due on Tuesday
Read chapter 2, section 1 Proofs about Numbers are the focus. Even and Odd numbers. Direct and Indirect proof techniques for an implication. Every positive integer greater than 1 is either PRIME or can be expressed as a PRODUCT OF PRIMES: 1 through 50 expressed only using the PRIME number building blocks: Prime numbers. See page 88 of textbook for Definition of PRIME numbers. Think about how you would prove the following: if (x divides y) and (y divides z) then (x divides z) or using  as our divides symbol, restated, it is prove the following implication about the integers, for all x, y and z ( (x  y) and (y  z) ) > (x  z) P > Q Try to prove it by direct proof, like we did in class on 9/18. Remember, x divides y means there exists some integer p such that y = px  a  b means that b = ka for some integer k
