Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if \((a,b)=1\) then for sure \((a,b^n)=1\) aswell

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't get it.!! the question is about the relationship between d and d'. Among the choices, only one option shows the relationship between them. Do we need any other logic to get the answer??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I was saying I do not understand how we can make any conclusion about anything given the information. :) I do agree it is interesting. We just cant assume that \(=1\) is even a thing because the relation \(\le \) seems to be on the ordered pairs. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the fundamental theorem of arithmetic is useful here if anyone needs any convincing (think prime factorizations )
