If there are integers s,t with as+bt=6, this implies that gcd(a,b)=6, right?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

And if gcd(a,b)=6, does this necessarily mean that a and b are not relatively prime since their gcd is not 1? (I have read that two integers a and b are relatively prime if gcd(a,b)=1).
