**drwls**, Friday, September 28, 2007 at 3:38pmIf b is an integer factor of b, and b is an integer factor of x, then

b = ma and c = nb, where m and n are both integers.

It follows that c = m n a. Since m and n are both integers, so is mn. Therefore a is an integer factor of c, or, in other words, "a divides c".
