U2 ; v2/, so that each ordered pair is associated n dn with a unique divisor of n2 . From du D nv D Œd;n , we have u D Œd;n and 2 n . u; v/ is the ordered pair associated with the divisor v D Œd;n d of n2 . Since d n and n2 are both common multiples of d and n, u and v are Œu;v n positive integers. Since Œd;n D du D nv D Œd;n , we indeed have Œu; v D n. This establishes the desired one-to-one correspondence. 1 Prove that if n is a positive odd integer, then 46n C 296 13n is divisible by 1947.
