    It is a problem for a modern algebra class. I am having trouble finding a list of theorems having to do with divides.

    if a is prime, and it divides a product, then it has to divide one of the factors

    Thanks a lot. I think I think your right. It should read For all integers a, b, and c, if a|bc and a is prime, then a|c or a|b. I think my teacher made a typo when she wrote it out.
