1. Determine whether or not each of the following integers is a prime

a) 9833

b) 150

2. Find q and r as defined by the division algorithm

a) a = -5286; b = 19

b) a = 5286; b = -19

b) 185,178

4. In each of the following cases, find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of a and b

applying the Euclidean algorithm.

a) a = 1575, b = 231

b) a = -3719, b = 8416

c) a = 28,844, b = -15,712

a). Because the number is not very small, we can’t figure by eye if it has a prime divisor or not. This is why we must try all possibilities in order to can decide if it is a prime number or not. This assumes to compute √9833=99.16… and to try dividing 9833 by all prime numbers which are smaller than 99. If none of these divisions give us the remainder 0, it means that 9833 is prime.

9,833 is an odd number, thus it can’t be divided by 2....
