let b denote a fixed positive integer. Prove the following statement by induction: for every integer n≥0, there exist nonnegative integers q and r such that n= qb+r, 0≤r<b.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone help me on how to solve this question? and how does induction works here?

thank you
