Let(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); pbe an odd prime. Letf(a)be a function defined foraprime topsatisfying the following properties:

(i)f(a)only takes the values ±1.

(ii) Ifa=b(modp), thenf(a)=f(b).

(iii)f(ab)=f(a)f(b)for allaandb.

Show that eitherf(a)= 1 for allaor thatf(a)= ([itex]\frac{a}{b}[/itex])
