One question from me:
Is every odd prime representable in form of 4k \( \pm\) 1, where k \( \epsilon \) N ? Or Is every prime greater than 3 is representable in form of 6k \( \pm\) 1, where k \( \epsilon \) N ?

Every odd number (not necessarily prime) is representable in the form \( 4k \pm 1 \) for a suitable k.

And for \( 6k \pm 1 \) ?Log in to reply

Proof: \(6k, 6k +2,6k+4\) are divisible by 2

\(6k+3\) is divisible by 3 – Sualeh Asif · 1 year, 7 months ago
