    spose you ahve 2 integers; if you take the larger of the two, and add it to the smaller ofthe two; you are essentially adding the two numbers togheter

    max(8,3) + min(8,3) = 8 + 3 and all that for the cost of tuition :/

    take 2 integers; x and y case 1; if x < y max(x,y) = y min(x,y) = x max(x,y) +min(x,y) = y + x case 2; if x > y max(x,y) = x min(x,y) = y max(x,y) +min(x,y) = x + y; which equals y + x case 2; if x = y max(y,y) = y min(x,x) = x max(x,y) +min(x,y) = y + x

    no, the other day we learned that if a is not a factor of b, but is a factor of c, then a divides b*c

    therefore; since 3 is not a factor of 5; but is a factor of 9; then 3 is a factor of 5*9

    it does ... this is the basics. try taking mit course on number theory. though i never;ve taken it yet. i think it's worth.

    well ... i never took number theory class. though i had read some part of it in analysis and algebra. I think it's quite interesting and though (this might be lack of experience)

    the class seems to revolve around prime numbers. On the last test, we had to determine oif some huge number was prime or not; and the only way we had to check it was by seeing of the 50 primes less than its sqrt divided it. In the end, it was prime
