Someone wrote this proof: If \(b\equiv c\mod m\), then \((b,m)=(c,m)\). Proof: If \(b\equiv c\mod m\) then \(c=b+sm\) for some \(s\). Now if \(d=(b,m)\) then \(d|b+sm\) so \(b|(b+sm,m)\). Likewise if \(d'=(b+sm,m)\) then \(d'|(b+sm)-sm=b\) so \(d'|(b,m)=d\). Thus \(d=d'\). \(\blacksquare\) But I have no freaking clue how that proves the implication. o_o Could someone help me see how?

I understand every step besides "\(b|(b+sm,m)\)." Does anyone know why this is the case?

I have the feeling that he may have typoed and should have written \(d|(b+sm,m)\) instead. What do you think?

(b, m) is the greatest common divisor of b and m correct?

That's correct.

I think you're right. It only makes sense if it's d instead of b there. By the way, how do you do inline LaTeX here?

Thank you. :) You write \.(\) instead of \.[\] (without the dot).
