Calculations tend to support this, and for n < 341 this does indeed successfully detect primality. 20. Testing the congruence 2n−1 ≡ 1 modulo n fails to detect the fact that n = 341 = 11 · 31 is composite. By Fermat’s Little Theorem, 210 ≡ 1 modulo 11 so 2340 ≡ 134 ≡ 1 modulo 11. Also 25 = 32 ≡ 1 modulo 31, so 2340 = (25 )68 ≡ 168 = 1 (mod 31). Thus 2340 − 1 is divisible by the coprime numbers 11 and 31, and hence by their product 341, so 2340 ≡ 1 modulo 341. 26): It gives the congruence ap−1 ≡ 1 (mod p) for any base a, not just a = 2.

27) Proof. The idea is to work your way up the chain of equations in the Euclidean Algorithm, always expressing the remainder in terms of the previous two remainders. Writing ∗ for an integer, we get gcd(a, b) = rn = rn−2 − rn−1 qn = rn−2 (1 + qn qn−1 ) − rn−3 qn = rn−3 · ∗ + rn−4 · ∗ .. = b · ∗ + r1 · ∗ = a · ∗ + b · ∗. 24. 21 we find that 1 = 6−5 = 6 − (11 − 6) = 2 · 6 − 11 = 2(17 − 11) − 11 = 2 · 17 − 3 · 11. 25. Let n > 1 and a denote elements of Z. Then a and n are coprime if and only if there exists x with ax ≡ 1 (mod n).

11. *[Legendre] Show that every integer not of the form 4n (8k + 7) is a sum of three integer squares. 12. Suppose a prime p is a sum of four squares. Is it true that the representation is unique? What if p is a sum of three squares? 4 Siegel’s Theorem In this section, we show how a direct application of the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic in rings that are larger than the integers, for example the Gaussian integers Z[i], can yield all the integral solutions to certain cubic equations. In the first example, we use the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic only in Z.
