In order to apply the role of the analogues between integers and polynomials, in this paper we introduce a unified diagram to the Fermat's theorem, Mason's theorem, Davenport's theorem and some arithmetic conjectures. Further, we show some applications of this diagram in teaching and researching on arithmetic. By using this elementary method in number theory, we obtained some results for polynomials and holomorphic functions in case complex and p-adic.
