Relatively prime integers
2.3
The integers a and b are said to be relatively prime if their greatest
common divisor is 1.
Of course, if two (distinct) integers are prime, they are also
relatively prime.
But two composite integers can also be relatively prime.
For example, 24 and 35.
24 = 2*2*2*3
35 = 5*7
