### Description:

Business professionals and engineers who need to gain a better understanding of mathematical reasoning will turn to Number Theory. This new book provides them with a rigorous yet accessible introduction to elementary number theory along with its relevant application. Every chapter includes a math myth, which is a fictional story that introduces an important number theory topic in a friendly, inviting manner. Many of the exercise sets include in-depth explorations, in which a series of exercises develop a topic that is related to the material in the section. Several theorems are preceded by Numerical Proof Previews, which are numerical examples that will help give business professionals and engineers a concrete understanding of both the statements of the theorems and the ideas behind their proofs, before formalizing the statement and proof in more abstract terms.Members Receive:
