Then gr^V • x = y so gzg^Qi • x = g3 • y. Thus 0 G (y) C 0 G (x). Similarly, 0 G (x) C 0 G (y) so 0 G (x) = 0G(y). Thus X is the disjoint union of its orbits and we call this the decomposition of X into its Gorbits. In particular if X is finite, then \X\ = Ylxex |0 G (x)|, where \S\ stands for the number of elements of the set S. Given a group G, an interesting example of an action is provided by taking 1(G) for the "group", G for the "set" and taking as the action the natural action of 1(G) on G.

Therefore 0 = r\ and a = jp, a contradiction since we are assuming that p doesn't divide a. Therefore we must have d = 1; that is nop + moo = 1. Multiplying by b yields nopb + moab = b. Since p divides ab and it evidently also divides nopb, it must divide b. 4. (The fundamental theorem of arithmetic). Any integer in Z + can be factored uniquely into primes. Proof of existence. Suppose there were some n £ Z+ which couldn't be factored into primes. Let no be the least such integer. In particular, no can't be a prime.

5. A prime of Z is a sum of squares of two integers if and only if it is not a prime of 9. Now it is reasonable to ask if this situation can be described completely in terms of integers. The answer is yes and this can be done in a very useful way provided by the following result, first stated by Fermat, but actually proven by Euler. Although we are not in a position to prove it in this section, we will in the succeeding one. This result has applications to determining whether a large integer is prime or not.
