### Re: ONTC Final Exam

In p3 , let's have two odd numbers - 2n+1 and 2p+1 . Their sum = 2n+2p+2 = 2(n+p+1) . Suppose 2n+2p+2 is divisible by 2 , but not 4 . So n+p+1 is not divisible by 2 . The difference = 2n-2p = 2(n-p) . n+p+1 is not divisible by 2 . So n+p must be divisible by 2 . That can be possible in two ways . Ei...

### Re: Exam 2, Online Number Theory Camp, 2015

Can p4 be solved like this ? (a^2 - 1)*(b^2-1) = a^2*b^2-a^2-b^2+1 . It is divisible by both a and b . And , a^2*b^2 is divisible by ab . So that leaves 1-a^2-b^2 . Let's multiply it with (-1) . Result = a^2+b^2+1 which is divisible by ab . And as for k being a positive integer , a and b are both gr...
