Dear Community,

I'm new in this forum and I'm performing my PhD in Computer Science.

My question is ,Given positive integer number a,b,c, a < c, b < c and gcd(a,b,c) = 1, does there exist integers |e|,|f| < log c such that gcd(ae + bf, c) = 1. I think there probably exists such integers, but I do not know how to prove it.
Could someone tell me how to prove it or provide a literature about this problem.

Thank you very much.
