In many books on number theory they define the well ordering principle (WOP) as: Every non- empty subset of positive integers has a least element. There are many different algorithms that could be implemented, and we will focus on division by repeated subtraction. If \(a>0\text{,}\) then AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 returns the quotient and remainder of the division of \(a\) by \(b\text{. \newcommand{\Ta}{\mathtt{a}} \newcommand{\Tv}{\mathtt{v}} Suppose f = a 0 + a 1x+ + a nxn g = b 0 + b 1x+ + b mxm are polynomials of degree n and m, respectively. The statement of the division algorithm as given in the theorem describes very explicitly and formally what long division is. The division algorithm for Z[i] If u, v ∈ Z[i] with v ≠ 0 then ∃ q, r ∈ Z[i] such that u = vq + r with N(r) < N(v). The Division Algorithm by Matt Farmer and Stephen Steward Subsection 3.2.1 Division Algorithm for positive integers In our first version of the division algorithm we start with a non-negative integer \(a\) and keep subtracting a natural number \(b\) until we end up with a number that is less than \(b\) and greater than or equal to \(0\text{. \newcommand{\W}{\mathbb{W}} Let \(a\) be an integer and \(b\) be a natural number. The division algorithm for polynomials has several important consequences. \(a \fdiv b\) and \(a \fmod b\) from \(a=q\cdot b+r\). Proof of Division Algorithm Date: 11/13/97 at 10:02:51 From: James Lester Subject: Proof of division algorithm We are looking for a proof for the division algorithm: a,b are positive integers, b does not equal 0; there are unique integers q and r such that a = qb + r; 0 is less than or equal to r, r is less than modulus value of b. }\) We write: \(-20 \fdiv 7 = -3\) and \(-20\fmod 7=1\), In the CheckpointÂ 3.2.19 write the quotient and remainder with the new operations \(\fdiv\) and \(\fmod\text{. }\) So we need a different algorithm for the case \(a\lt 0\text{. }\) We call the number of times that we can subtract \(b\) from \(a\) the quotient of the division of \(a\) by \(b\text{. The division algorithm for integers says the following: Given two positive integers a and b, with b 6= 0, there exists unique integers q and r such that a = qb+ r where 0 r < jbj. \newcommand{\mox}[1]{\mathtt{\##1}} A similar theorem exists for polynomials. As \(a=4\) and \(b=7\) statement \(a \lt b\) is true. \newcommand{\Ts}{\mathtt{s}} \newcommand{\gt}{>} The remainder is \(3\text{. By its construction, S is only allowed to contain non-negative integers, so it remains to show that it is non-empty. Recall the well-ordering principle tells us that any non-empty set of non-negative integers contains a least element. There exist unique integers q and r with the property that a = bq + r, where 0 ≤ r < b My Proof (Existence) Consider every multiple of b. Proof This proof is … If $b \ge 0$, this is trivial, as $b$ itself will be in the set (consider $k=0$). As \(r=1\) the statement \(r\ge 0\) is false. \end{equation*}, \begin{equation*} Remark. \end{equation*}, \begin{equation*} Follow the instructions to find quotient and remainder. We can use the division algorithm to prove The Euclidean algorithm. When we speak of the quotient and the remainder when we “divide an integer \(a\) by the positive integer \(b\),” we will always mean the quotient \(q\) and the remainder \(r\) guaranteed by the Division Algorithm. The Division Algorithm. The division algorithm, therefore, is more or less an approach that guarantees that the long division process is actually foolproof. \newcommand{\Z}{\mathbb{Z}} This algorithm has got many practical applications in finding the properties of numbers. \newcommand{\To}{\mathtt{o}} This is the outline of the proof: Describe how to find the integers \(q\) and \(r\) such that \(b=aq+r\). \newcommand{\nix}{} We illustrate the process of dividing a negative number by dividing \(-33\) by \(9\text{.

Although this result doesn't seem too profound, it is nonetheless quite handy. \end{array}$$ Consequently, $r_2 - r_1$ is some multiple of $a$. }\), When we are given the quotient and remainder from the division of an integer \(a\) by a natural number \(b\text{,}\) we can recover \(a\text{. Remarks. Prove that gcd(a,b) = r n, the last nonzero remainder. \newcommand{\Tl}{\mathtt{l}} a = (10\cdot 42)+7=427. There is a lot more left to learn in real numbers. Proof.

That is, prove that the integers qand rare unique, which means that if (q1,r1) satisﬁes b= q1a+r1, 0 ≤r10. \newcommand{\id}{\mathrm{id}} 3.2.2. So it must be the case that $r \lt a$. In AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 and AlgorithmÂ 3.2.10 we indicate this by giving two values separated by a comma after the return. We find the output values of the AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 for the input values \(a=30\) and \(b=8\text{.}\). }\) We write: In ExampleÂ 3.2.5 we have seen that when dividing \(a=-20\) by \(b=7\) the quotient is \(-3\) and the remainder is \(1\text{. -33 + 9\cdot 4 + 3\mbox{ or } -33=-(9\cdot 4) + 3 \mbox{ or } -33=9\cdot(-4)+3\text{.} \newcommand{\set}[1]{\left\{#1\right\}} }\), We call \(q\) the quotient of the division of \(a\) by \(b\) and denote it by \(a\fdiv b\text{. The number qis called the quotientand ris called the remainder. Proof of the Divison Algorithm The Division Algorithm If $a$ and $b$ are integers, with $a \gt 0$, there exist unique integers $q$ and $r$ such that $$b = qa + r \quad \quad 0 \le r \lt a$$ The integers $q$ and $r$ are called the quotient and remainder , respectively, of the division of $b$ by $a$. -15 + 9 7\amp = -6\\ \newcommand{\Tx}{\mathtt{x}} So we continue with stepÂ 5.

The next theorem shows a connection between the division algorithm and congruences. \(-20\fdiv 7\) and \(-20\fmod 7\) with AlgorithmÂ 3.2.10. }\) Thus we have: For the given values of \(a\) and \(b\text{,}\) determine the quotient \(q\) and remainder \(r\) of the division of \(a\) by \(b\text{,}\) and write the equality \(a=(q \cdot b) + r\text{.}\). So regardless of the value of $b$, $S$ will have at least one element, and is thus non-empty. Theorem 17.6. As \(r=22\) and \(q=1\) the statement \(r \lt q\) is false. Multiplication Algorithm & Division Algorithm The multiplier and multiplicand bits are loaded into two registers Q and M. A third register A is initially set to zero. However, since $0 \le r_1, r_2 \lt a$ and $r_2 > r_1$, it must be the case that $0 \le r_2 - r_1 \lt a$. A similar theorem exists for polynomials. As \(r=-20\) the statement \(r\ge 0\) is false. \newcommand{\Si}{\Th} 5. \newcommand{\Sni}{\Tj} We first consider this case and then generalize the algorithm to all integers by giving a division algorithm for negative integers. We return the quotient \(q=-3\) and the remainder \(r=1\), Thus the quotient or the division of \(-20\) by \(7\) is \(-3\) and the remainder is \(1\text{.}\). }\) Thus \(-20=(-3)\cdot 7+1\text{. \newcommand{\Tw}{\mathtt{w}} \newcommand{\Tj}{\mathtt{j}} \end{equation*}, \begin{equation*} Putting the left side of this last inequality back into its original form, we end up with $b - ka \ge 0$. }\) We call the combination of the two algorithms the division algorithm. }\), For \(a=-13\) and \(b=3\text{,}\) we have \(q=-5\) and \(r=2\text{,}\) and write \(-13=(3\cdot (-5)) +2\text{. 1.

Find \(a\) from \(a \fdiv b\) and \(a \fmod b\). In a manner similar to that employed above, we can construct a set $$S = \{ b - ka, \textrm{ where } k \textrm{ is an integer and } b - ka \ge 0 \}$$ We seek to show using the well-ordering principle that this set has a least element (which we hope will play the role of $r$). As \(0\le 3\lt 9\) we are done. For instance, it is used in proving the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic, and will also appear in the next chapter. $$\begin{array}{rcl} The multiplicative groups \((\Z_p^\otimes,\otimes)\). The theorem is frequently referred to as the division algorithm (although it is a theorem and not an algorithm), because its proof as given below lends itself to a simple division algorithm for computing q and r (see the section Proof for more). When working through the instructions of AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 it can be more convenient to give the values of all relevant variables in each iteration of the loop in a table. The Euclidean Algorithm 3.2.1. In ExampleÂ 3.2.6 you can observe how the values of the variables change as you click your way through the steps of the division algorithm. Solution : As we have seen in problem 1, if we divide 400 by 8 using long division, we get. Further, as seen before, $$q_2 = \frac{b - r_2}{a} \quad \textrm{and} \quad q_1 = \frac{b - r_1}{a}$$ Since $r_1$ and $r_2$ agree in value, this forces $q_1$ and $q_2$ to agree in value as well. Without loss of generality, let us suppose that $r_2 \ge r_1$. \newcommand{\fdiv}{\,\mathrm{div}\,} We already know $r$ is non-negative as it was in $S$, so all we need to do now is assure ourselves that it is less than $a$. \newcommand{\R}{\mathbb{R}} We revisit ExampleÂ 3.2.4 present the work in a more compact form. We have, p(x) = x 3 – 3x 2 + 5x – 3 and g(x) = x 2 – 2 3.2. \newcommand{\Ty}{\mathtt{y}} The Euclidean algorithm can be proven to work in vast generality. \newcommand{\Tt}{\mathtt{t}} 1.5 The Division Algorithm We begin this section with a statement of the Division Algorithm, which you saw at the end of the Prelab section of this chapter: Theorem 1.2 (Division Algorithm) Let a be an integer and b be a positive integer. }\) Let \(s\) be the number of times we have to add \(b\) to \(a\) in order to get \(0 \le r \lt b\text{. The division algorithm is by far the most complicated of all the written algorithms taught in primary/elementary school. The Division Algorithm Theorem. }\), We call \(r\) the remainder of the division of \(a\) by \(b\) and denote it by \(a\fmod b\text{. If d is the gcd of a, b there are integers x, y such that d = ax + by. As \(a=30\) and \(b=8\) the statement \(a \lt b\) is false. Given two numbers, for instance, 1052 In such a case one can use a simplified algorithm. Then there are unique polynomials q(x) and r(x) 2F[x] such that f(x) = q(x)g(x) + r(x) and either r(x) = 0 or the degree of r(x) is less than the degree mof g(x). We rst prove this result under the additional assumption that b>0 is a natural number. \newcommand{\N}{\mathbb{N}} The remainder is smaller than the divisor. So we continue with stepÂ 4. \newcommand{\A}{\mathbb{A}} Since a is an integer, it must lie in some interval [qb,(q+1)b). In ExampleÂ 3.2.3 we have seen that when dividing \(a=4\) by \(b=7\) the quotient is \(0\) and the remainder is \(4\text{. Consequently $b(1-a) \ge 0$. Here 23 = 3×7+2, so q= 3 and r= 2. So we follow the instruction after then and return the values of \(q\) and \(r\text{,}\) namely 0 and 4. Theorem 17.6. Then there exist unique integers q and r such that. }\) We have added \(9\) four times, so the quotient is \(-4\text{. If aand bare integers and b6= 0 then there are unique integers qand r, called the quotient and re-mainder such that a= qb+ r where 0 r 0. }\) That number is the remainder. }\) After \(s\) additions of \(b\) to \(a\) we have, If we let \(q:=-s\text{,}\) we get \(r=a-(q\cdot b)\) (compare this to what we wanted). In grade school you Recall that if $b$ is positive, the remainder of the division of $b$ by $a$ is the result of subtracting as many $a$'s as are possible while still keeping the result non-negative. \newcommand{\Q}{\mathbb{Q}} \end{equation*}, \begin{equation*} The theorem is frequently referred to as the division algorithm (although it is a theorem and not an algorithm), because its proof as given below lends itself to a simple division algorithm for computing q and r (see the section Proof for more). \newcommand{\mlongdivision}[2]{\longdivision{#1}{#2}} Dividing \(30\) by \(8\) with AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2. a \fdiv 42 = 10 As \(r=14\) and \(q=8\) the statement \(r \lt q\) is false. It is indeed the case that given integers $a$ and $b$, with $a > 0$, there exist unique integers $q$ and $r$ such that $b = qa + r$ and $0 \le r \lt a$. Here is an example: Take a = 76, b = 32 : In general, use the procedure: divide (say) a by b to get remainder r 1. Let Sbe the set of all natural numbers of the form a kd, where kis an integer. We find the output values of AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 for the input values \(a=4\) and \(b=7\text{.}\). }\), Replacing \(q\) with \(10\) and \(r\) with \(7\) we get, In CheckpointÂ 3.2.21 use conduct the computation from the example above to find the integer \(a\) when given \(a \fdiv b\) and \(a \fmod b\text{. The construction of \(q\) and \(r\) in AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 and AlgorithmÂ 3.2.10 yields a proof of the following theorem. }\) For \(a=0\) and any natural number \(b\) we have \(a=(q\cdot b)+r\) and \(0\le r\lt b\) when \(q=0\) and \(r=0\text{.}\). \newcommand{\blanksp}{\underline{\hspace{.25in}}} -33 + 9 \amp = -24\\ Another variant of the division algorithm.

We aim to show that $b - ka \ge 0$ for this value of $k$ and must then necessarily be in the set S. To this end, note $$b - ka = b - ba = b (1-a)$$ and the factor $(1-a)$ must be either zero or negative as $a \gt 0$. \newcommand{\amp}{&} We find the output values of AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 for the input values \(a=30\) and \(b=8\text{.}\). The key part here is that you can use the fact that naturals are well ordered by looking at the degree of your remainder. Then they use this in the proof of the division algorithm by constructing non-negative integers and applying WOP to this construction. Since its proof is very similar to the corresponding proof for integers, it is worthwhile to review Theorem 2.9 at this point. Sometimes one is not interested in both the quotient and the remainder. Some mathematicians prefer to call it the division theorem. Note that r is an integer with 0 ≤ r < b and a = qb + r as required. If p(x) and g(x) are any two polynomials with g(x) ≠ 0, then we can find polynomials q(x) and r(x) such that p(x) = q(x) × g(x) + r(x) where r(x) = 0 or degree of r(x) < degree of g(x). \end{equation*}, MAT 112 Ancient and Contemporary Mathematics. }\) We repeatedly add \(b\) to negative numbers until \(0\le r\lt b\) is true. ˛ ˚ !$ 1" Title: 3613-l07.dvi Author: binegar Created Date: 9/9/2005 8:51:21 AM Then they use this in the proof of the division algorithm by constructing non-negative integers and applying WOP to this construction. It remains to show that these values for $q$ and $r$ are unique. In CheckpointÂ 3.2.7 we unroll the loop in AlgorithmÂ 3.2.2 in a similar way. To borrow a word from physics, the description of long division by the two conditions a = qd+r and 0 r0 and bare integers. The Division Algorithm is really nothing more than a guarantee that good old long division really works. }\), For \(a=20\) and \(b=4\text{,}\) we have \(q=5\) and \(r=0\text{,}\) and write \(20=(4\cdot 5)+0\text{. We return the quotient \(q=3\) and the remainder \(r=6\), Thus the quotient of the division of \(30\) by \(8\) is \(3\) and the remainder is \(6\text{.}\).

In each row of the table we write the values of all variables for an iteration of the loop. 4. }\) Thus we have: In ExampleÂ 3.2.5 we have seen that when dividing \(a=-20\) by \(b=7\) the quotient is \(q=-3\) and the remainder is \(r=1\text{. Jan 29, 2012 1,151. q_1 a - q_2 a &=& r_2 - r_1 \quad \textrm{and thus,}\\ We have. This may appear to be confusing at rst, but it is literally just saying that you can divide an in- teger a by a nonzero integer b and get a remainder which is less than the number we are dividing by. So we continue with stepÂ 6. \newcommand{\gro}[1]{{\color{gray}#1}} We first consider an example in which the algorithm terminates before we enter the repeat_until loop. Sol. Proof.

In ExampleÂ 3.2.12 you can observe how the values of the variables change as you click your way thought the steps of the division algorithm. 1.4. If $b$ is negative, the remainder is found in a slightly different way -- by adding as many $a$'s as necessary until the result becomes non-negative. We need to argue two things. r=a\underbrace{+b + b+\ldots+b}_{\mbox{\(s\) times} }=a+(b\cdot s)\text{.} The process of division often relies on the long division method.

The simplest division algorithm, historically incorporated into a greatest common divisor algorithm presented in Euclid's Elements, Book VII, Proposition 1, finds the remainder given two positive integers using only subtractions and comparisons: See more ideas about Math division, Fourth grade math, 4th grade math. The division algorithm, therefore, is more or less an approach that guarantees that the long division process is actually foolproof. The only multiple of $a$ in this range is zero, so $r_2 - r_1 = 0$, or equivalently, $r_1 = r_2$. Remainder = 0 Then, we need to show that $q$ and $r$ are unique. To find the very first term of the quotient, divide the first term of the dividend by the highest degree term in the divisor. The following result is known as The Division Algorithm:1 If a,b ∈ Z, b > 0, then there exist unique q,r ∈ Z such that a = qb+r, 0 ≤ r < b.Here q is called quotient of the integer division of a by b, and r is called remainder. \newcommand{\Tg}{\mathtt{g}} \newcommand{\cox}[1]{\fcolorbox[HTML]{000000}{#1}{\phantom{M}}} \newcommand{\vect}[1]{\overrightarrow{#1}} It is not actually an algorithm, but this is this theorem’s traditional name.

But consider the alternative: if $r \ge a$, then $b - k_r a \ge a$, which implies (after subtracting $a$ from both sides) that $$b - (k_r + 1)a \ge 0$$ This contradicts the fact that $r$ was the smallest element of the set $S$. \end{equation*}, \begin{equation*} For positive integers we conducted division as repeated subtraction. \newcommand{\cspace}{\mbox{--}} Finding $q$ is now easy, as if $b = qa + r$, then $$q = \frac{b-r}{a}$$ Replacing $r$ with $b - k_r a$, we have Show that our choice of \(r\) satisfies \(0\leq r< a\).
