All solutions must be submitted in hardcopy
either to me in class or placed in my mailbox.

Note my office hours on my
schedule.

- ENT, §1.1, Problem 10(a), page 7.
- Consider
*C*from ENT, §1.2, Problem 10, page 12. Prove that_{n}*C*for all_{n}= binomial(2n,n) - binomial(2n,n-1)*n ≥ 1*, thus showing that the*C*are integers._{n} - ENT, §2.2, Problem 20(f), page 25.
Prove first that GCD(a,b
^{2}) = 1, and that for g = GCD(a^{2}, b^{2}), GCD(a,g) = 1. - ENT, §2.3, Problem 2(b), page 31. Please compute the Bezout coefficients by the extended Euclidean algorithm presented in class, not the back-substitution given in the book.
- Prove for the extended Euclidean algorithm described in class:
*s*for all_{k}t_{k+1}- s_{k+1}t_{k}= (-1)^{k+1}*-1 ≤ k ≤ n*
