Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Sorry, afk for a minute there. But looking at my notes from number theory/cryptography, The euclidean algorithm was just about the first thing we did. Another thing we looked at was primitive pythagorean triplets.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Number theory it is a branch of pure mathematics devoted primarily to the study of the integers. Number theorists study prime numbers as well as the properties of objects made out of integers (like rational numbers) or defined as generalizations of the integers (like algebraic integers).
