TopNewestBy Bézout's identity, if there exists integer \((x,y)\) such that it satisfy \(ax+by = 1\), then \((a,b)\) shall have the GCD as 1 (i.e. A and B is coprime)

If \(a|n\) and \(b|n\), then for nonzero integer \(i, j\), it will be \(n = ai\) and \(n = bj\) or \(n^2 = abij\), which means

\[n^2\times\frac{1}{ab} = ij\]

Which proves that \(ab|n\), by closed-form of integer multiplication. – Kay Xspre · 11 months, 3 weeks ago
