#### What is algorithm?

An algorithm is a series of well-defined steps which gives a procedure for solving a type of problem.

#### Lemma

A lemma is a proven statement used for proving another statement.

#### Euclid’s Division Lemma

For the given positive integers a and b, there exist unique integers q and r satisfying a = bq + r, r = 0 or 0 < r < b.

**Example of Euclid’s division lemma**

Prove that the square of an integer is of the form 9k or 3k + 1.

#### Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic

Every composite number can be expressed (factorised) as a product of primes, and this factorisation is unique, apart from the order in which the prime factors occur. In other word, the prime factorisation of a natural number is unique, except for the order of its factors.

**Historical Facts**

**Historical Facts**

The word algorithm come from the name of the name of the 9th century Persian mathematician ** al-Khwarizmi**. The word ‘algebra’ is derived from a book, he wrote, called Hisab al-jabr w’al-muqabala.

An equivalent version of Fundamental theorem of Arithmetic was probably first recorded as Proposition 14 of

*IX in Euclid’s Elements, before it came to be known as the Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic.*

**Book**However, the first correct proof was given by Carl Friedrich Gauss in his

*al-Khwarizmi*Carl Friedrich Gauss is often referred to as the ‘Prince of Mathematicians’ and is considered one of the three greatest mathematicians of all time, along with Archimedes and Newton. He has made fundamental contributions to both mathematics and science.
