Hi guys, i m just a begineer in number theory.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

While solving some questions ,i came across a doubt.

The expression: a+bx

here, gcd(a,b)=1

There always exists a value of x(where x is a integer) such that the above

expression is equal to a prime number.

Can anyone prove the above statement (if it is true).

Also,please suggest some good book on number theory for begineers.

Thanks in advance.
