Help with factors (very basic)

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    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! :smile:

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