    What one do you need help with? Sieve of Erastosthenes should be enough for the first 2.

    I'm guessing you've just started this at college, in which case the lecturers will have to cover the basics to get everyone to the same level before they proceed with the more advanced stuff.

    If integers n and k are relatively prime then gcd(n, k)=1 is the technical definition.

    i think a classmate of mine did a paper in which he mentioned the totient function, if i recall correctly it has a relationship with a fibonnacci sequnce

    I'm not sure how it could have a relationship with the fibonacci sequence, I'd be interested to see if it did though.
