## Main Question or Discussion Point

[tex]e_r=\#\lbrace d:d\mid n\;\;\; \textup{and}\;\;\; d=p_r^k, k\in N\rbrace[/tex]

where [tex]n=p_r^{e_r}[/tex]

I am using it in a proof (we were actually shown how to do the proof a different way, but want to see if I can complete the proof in a different way. What I have stated seems logical to me, but not sure how I would prove it. I'm not 100% on the notation I've used, so if anything is unclear I can write what I mean in words. Thanks :)

hmmm, \hspace doesn't seem to work in this environment :S
