Some Extensions on Numbers

My previous work dealt finding numbers which relatively prime to factorial value of certain number, high exponents and also find the way for finding mod values on certain number’s exponents. Firstly, I retreat my previous works about Euler’s phi function and some works on Fermat’s little theorem. Next, I construct exponent parallelogram to find coherence numbers of Euler’s phi functioned numbers and apply to Fermat’s little theorem. Then, I test the primality of prime numbers on Pascal’s triangle and explore new ways to construct Pascal’s triangle. Finally, I find the factorial value for certain number by using exponent triangle.

1. Introduction

We know Fermat’s little theorem and Euler’s φ (phi) function. Such are well defined operations on number theory and algebra. Euler’s φ (phi) function is considered as general proof of Fermat’s little theorem. We seek other ways to find mod values on Fermat’s little theorem, and generalize φ (phi) function for a certain integer’s exponentiation and factorial value. We construct the exponent parallelogram to find the coherence values of Euler’s φ (phi) function. We find higher valued exponents on Fermat’s little theorem according to this. We also specify Fermat’s last theorem by using prime numbers. Also we know binomial coefficients are constructing Pascal’s triangle, in which we see the divisibility of prime numbers (primality test) in prime number exponentiation on Pascal’s triangle. In addition, we construct Pascal’s triangle and seek other ways except for binomial coefficients, i.e. and construct Pascal’s triangle by arithmetic operations triangle. Finally instead of binomial coefficients in Pascal’ triangle, we use exponents value of certain integer to construct Pascal’s triangle, and then use “n”th expansion to find factorial of such certain number.

First Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) introduced Pascal’s triangle, after that, Isaac Newton (1643-1727) used the facts of Pascal’s triangle he developed binomial expansion. He and his followers used binomial theorem for Probability and Statistical problems. Factorial were used to count permutations at as early as the 12th century, by Indian scholars. In 1677, Fabian Stedman described factorial as applied to change ringing, a musical art involving the ringing of many tuned bells. In his words “Now the nature of these methods is such that the change of one number comprehends (includes) changes on lesser numbers”. In that mean period, James Stirling (1692-1770) first introduced one approximation for finding nth factorial of a certain number. Then Adrien-Marrie Legendre used Leonhard Euler’s (1707-1783) second integral formula and notated a symbol for it and then named it as Gamma function. It was a good approximation finding factorial of Real numbers. Jacques Philippe Marie Binet (1786-1856), modified James Stirling’s approximation. Finally, the notation n! was introduced by the French mathematician Christian Kramp in 1808. Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665) stated Little theorem, for any two relatively prime numbers, in which exponent should be prime number; after that Leonhard Euler (1707-1783) found Totient function and then generalized Fermat’s little theorem for any two relatively prime numbers.

From this book “Prime numbers a computational Perspective” , we know prime numbers and primality test. From this paper “Fermat’s little theorem” , we know various types of explanations about Fermat’s little theorem.

Prepositions 2 to 6 are worked by me. They are noted as PRB which means Prema. R. Balasubramani . They are published in Fermat’s theorem one extension: Mathematical Sciences International Journal ISSN 2278-8697 VOLUME 8 ISSUE 1 (JUNE 2019), P. 6-10.

2) I test the primality of prime numbers on Pascal’s triangle.

3) I specify Fermat’s last theorem by prime numbers.

2.1. Let’s Now Examine φ(pn) When p Is a Factor of n

Lemma 1: Let p be a prime and p divides n, then .

Proof: Notice that all the numbers that are relatively prime to pn are also relatively prime to n. since and p divides n the following result follows: if and only if for any natural number r.

There are p intervals, each with Φ(n) numbers relatively prime to pn, hence by the hint 1: the set has elements. □

For our example we choose 20, so let’s consider 2 × 20; . Putting together the two sets mentioned in our previous examples we have {1, 3, 7, 9, 11, 13, 17, 19, 21, 23, 27, 29, 31, 33, 37, 39}, exactly all 16 numbers are relatively prime to 40.

2.2. Let’s Now Examine φ(pn) When p Is Not a Factor of n

Lemma 2: Let p be a prime and p does not divide n, then .

Proof: We know that pΦ(n) is the number of numbers relatively prime to n and less than pn. Notice that all the multiples of p whose factors are relatively prime to n are counted, since . Notice the conditions imply iff and .

Suppose the list of multiples is , where all the r’s are relatively prime to n. the set has Φ(n) numbers relatively prime to n and 0 relatively prime to p, because they are all multiples of p. we subtract this many from our original count and we have .□

For our examples we choose 20, so let’s consider 3 × 20;. Putting together the two sets mentioned in our previous examples we have {1, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 49, 53, 59} exactly all 16 numbers relatively prime to 60.

Preposition 1: Let n be a positive integer. Then when n is composite number and when n is prime number.

Proof: Let n be a positive integer.

When n be a composite number and n divides, then .

Notice that all the numbers that are relatively prime to are also relatively prime to. Since And n divides The following result follows: if and only if for any natural number r.

There are n intervals, each with numbers relatively prime to, hence by the hint 1: the set has elements.

When n be a prime and n does not divide, then .

We know that is the number of numbers relatively prime to and less than. Notice that all the multiples of n whose factors are relatively prime to are counted, since. Notice the conditions imply if and only if and.

Suppose the list of multiples is, where all the r’s are relatively prime to. The set has numbers relatively prime to and 0 relatively prime to n, because they are all multiples of n. by this way we get.

Preposition 2 (PRB): Let n be a positive integer. Then where ni’s are composite numbers and’s are prime numbers not exceeding n.

Proof:

Using preposition 1, we obtained when n is composite number and

when n is prime number. Since all even numbers are composites except 2 because 2 is prime. So we cannot find an even composite number less than four. And two is the only prime number less than three. Also 1 is the only number relatively prime to two and below it. So we obtained from these two equations we get

Preposition 3 (PRB): Let n be a positive integer and “a” be an exponent to n. Then.

Proof: The positive integers less than na that are not relatively prime to n are those integers not exceeding na that are divisible by n. There are exactly na-1 such integers, so there are integers less than na that are relatively prime to na.

Hence,

Example 4: Find the value of φ(104).

Solution:

Let φ(104) then.

Since 10 is a composite, 104 = 10,000 so φ(10,000) = 4000.

Example 5: Find the value of φ(3315).

Solution:

Let φ(3315) then

Since 331 is a prime, 3315 = 3,973,195,810,651 so φ(3,973,195,810,651) = 3,961,192,197,930.

2.5. Exponent Parallelogram

Definition 1: Let and be the exponent to m then do 1st operation is subtracting each element with its successive element of 1st line elements. Result will be, we shall name as “a”. 2nd operation is subtracting each element with its successive element of 1st operation, result will be then we shall name as “a2”. 3rd operation is subtracting each element with its successive element of 2nd operation, result will be then we shall name as “a3”. By this way we do the same up to nth operation. These 1st line to nth operation diagonal elements coefficients construct exponent parallelogram.

Now we construct exponent parallelogram:

Let we construct exponent plane for 5: for and

Now we get,

By the above results we define,

1) If “E” is a 1st line prime exponent and “a” is an integer with (a, E) = 1, then.

2) If “E” is a prime exponent and “a” is an integer with (a, E) = 1, then, where “k” is any positive integer of 1st operation to k-th operation coherence numbers of φ(E).

1) Let 7 is a first line prime exponents i.e. (1, 7, 49, 343,) and with (4, 7) = 1, then.

2) Let 7 is a first line prime exponents, (6, 42, 294, 2058,) are 1st operation to kth operation and with (4, 7) = 1, then. Where 6, 42, 294, 2058, are coherence numbers of φ(7).
