I was wondering if this is a correct statement, I'm assuming it is for my proof.

Let e,f and g be non zero integers and assume ef|g is true.

I'm 100% positive this means [itex]e[/itex] and [itex]f[/itex] must both be a factor of [itex]g[/itex] .

May some one please confirm if I am correct or wrong please.

you're 100% right!

(generally, if a|b and b|c, then a|c)
