3 CHAPTER 5 ON A CONJECTURE OF ERD í OS 3 mod12 ç Z The questio aturally arises as to the possibility of costructig a set of coverig cogrueces whose moduli are pairwise relatively prime The aswer is o, as we will ow show The proof depeds o results of Theorem 1 S Theorem 2 Ay æite system of cogrueces ëa i=1 i;1;a i;2 ;:::;a ëmodb i;æbi i where the b i are pairwise relatively prime, ad a i;k 6= a i;m for k 6= m, ad æ bi éb i,caot form a coverig set of cogrueces Proof We use Theorem S 1, for the case æ bi =1for 1 ç i ç Forasystem of cogrueces f a i=1 i mod b i g with pairwise relatively prime moduli b i to be a coverig set, it is ecessary that the system of cogrueces forms a complete residue Q Q system, that is, a uio of b i=1 i distict èicogruetè residues modulo b i=1 i However, Q Q sice the complemetary set cosists of èb i=1 i,1è cogrueces modulo Q Q b i=1 i, the system cosists Q of Q Q b i=1 i, èb i=1 i, 1è cogrueces modulo b i=1 i This meas that b Q Q i=1 i, èb i=1 i, 1è must equal b i=1 i,or èb i=1 i,1è = 0; this is a cotradictio, sice 2 ç b 1 éb 2 ::éb That is to say,ittakes iæitely may cogrueces with pairwise relatively prime moduli to costruct a coverig set The situatio is actually muchworse; if we costruct a system of cogrueces è ë è ëa i;1 ;a i;2 ;:::;a i;æbi ëmodb i ; i=1 a system of cogrueces with æ bi residues for each modulus b i, where æ bi éb i, ad a i;k 6= a i;m for k 6= Q m, the the complemetary Q Q set cosists of èb i=1 i,æ bi è cogrueces modulo b i=1 i Here, èb i=1 i, æ bi è must equal zero, which is a cotradictio because b i, æ bi ç 1 Agai, it takes iæitely may such cogrueces to costruct a coverig set I the extreme case, whe æ bi = b i, 1, we have the system 8é o, x ç ëa 1;1 ;a 1;2 ;:::;a 1;b1,1ë modb 1 x ç ëa 2;1 ;a 2;2 ;:::;a 2;b2,1ë modb 2 x ç ëa ;1 ;a ;2 ;:::;a ;b,1ë modb è52è where the b i are pairwise relatively prime, ad each set of cogrueces modulo b i cotais b i,1 cogrueces, ie, oe cogruece shy of a complete residue system for each modulus b i Q Q The complemet of the system cosists Q of èb i=1 i,èb i,1èè cogruece modulo b i=1 i, or 1 cogruece modulo b i=1 i Hece the system è52è cotais a complete residue system oly if we cap it oæ with the last

5 CHAPTER 5 ON A CONJECTURE OF ERD í OS 5 Theorem 3 I order for the proper divisors of a umber M to costitute the moduli of a coverig set it is ecessary that M be perfect or abudat, ie, ç 0 èmè ç M We will prove i Theorem 5 that if M is a perfect umber, ie, ç 0 èmè =M, the a system è53è caot comprise a coverig set Observatio 2 It may ot be ecessary to use all divisors of a abudat umber M to form a coverig set; however, accordig to our eumeratio of the residues modulo M of system è53è, we must remove all residues associated with the divisors that are removed For example, suppose we do't use the divisor d k, the we must remove a total of M=d k residues from the set of ç 0 èmè residues couted i Observatio 1 However, the divisor d k caot cotai the greatest multiple of ay oe prime appearig i the prime decompositio M = p ç1 1 pç2 2 æææpç, for i that case, lcmèd 1 ;d 2 ;:::;d k,1;d k+1 ;:::;d ç è 6= M, that is to say, we would ot have remodulized the system to the modulus M, but istead to some modulus ém I the origial set 8 é x ç ë0; 2; 4; 6; 8; 10ë mod 12 x ç ë0; 3; 6; 9ë mod 12 x ç ë1; 5; 9ë mod 12 x ç ë1; 7ë mod 12 x ç ë11ë mod 12 we æd that the itegers 0,1,6, ad 9 represet 4 repetitios, sice ç 0 è12è,12 = 4 The total umber of repetitios that occur i a system è53è which forms a coverig set is ç 0 èmè,m The followig theorem eumerates the total umber of repetitios that occur i two cogrueces Theorem 4 If two cogrueces a 1 mod b 1 ad a 2 mod b 2, where gcdèb 1 ;b 2 è= 1, are remodulized to the modulus pb 1 b 2, where p 2 Z, the the solutio set èitersectioè cosists of p residues modulo pb 1 b 2 Proof If we obtai a pair of cogrueces ç x ç a1 mod b 1 x ç a 2 mod b 2 è54è where b 1 ad b 2 are relatively prime, the remodulizig each tomodulo b 1 b 2, the itersectio by the Chiese Remaider Theorem ë3ë is determied to be the uique cogruece x ç a 0 mod b 1 b 2, where a 1 ç a 0 ç a 1 + b 1 èb 2, 1è ad a 2 ç a 0 ç a 2 +b 2 èb 1,1è If the pair is remodulized, ot to the smallest modulus,
