we can prove it by induction (n=1,.......,9) for n=1, it is a perfect square of 1 let it be true for n, so 123.....n........321 = m^2 for some m an odd integer see that 100m^2 + 20m + 1 = 123......(n+1).......321 therefore (10m+1)^2=123........(n+1)...........321 ,proved see that 10m+1 is odd Sauditya Yo Yo · 1 year, 5 months ago
