Q 0 q/d , so r r 0 is divisible by d . But jr r 0 j Ä maxfr; r 0 g < d , so the only possibility is r r 0 D 0. q 0 q/d D 0, so q 0 q D 0. ■ We have shown the existence of a prime factorization of any natural number, but we have not shown that the prime factorization is unique. This is a more subtle issue, which is addressed in the following discussion. The key idea is that the greatest common divisor of two integers can be computed without knowing their prime factorizations. 8. A natural number ˛ is the greatest common divisor of nonzero integers m and n if (a) ˛ divides m and n and (b) whenever ˇ 2 N divides m and n, then ˇ also divides ˛.
