No, I missed listing the constraint. It should read that, if p divides the PRODUCT of all n integers, then p must divide one of the integers on the list. I’ll get that corrected and reposted this week.

While on the topic of corrections, should “the result follows from the assumption of the n + 1 case” refer to the case for “n” and not “n + 1”?

November 4, 2011@ 10:44 amI’m enjoying this series. I’m a bit confused by the following statement though

Am I missing some other constraint on these variables? What if I pick p = 7, n = 3, a1 = 1, a2 = 2, and a3 = 3?

November 13, 2011@ 7:55 amThanks for catching those. Both errors should now be corrected.
