Division Algorithm states that $$a=q_{1}b+r_{1}$$ where $$\leq r_{1} < b$$ so we need to have $$r=r_{1} + 2b$$ to get the wanted inequality. Now substituting $$r_{1}$$ in terms of $$r$$; $a=q_{1}b+r-2b$ with which we can get the value of $$q$$; $a=(q_{1}-2)b+r$ Hence, $$q=q_{1}-2$$, satisfying the equation $$a=qb+r$$ · 2 years, 1 month ago

Use \leq for $$\leq$$. Nice proof. · 2 years, 1 month ago

Thanks! Had been trying to find that LaTeX. · 2 years, 1 month ago

With the new display Latex tools, you just need to find some problem / note / solution with the corresponding latex that you need :) Staff · 2 years, 1 month ago
