### Devide by $6$

Posted: Thu Jan 10, 2019 11:01 am
$C=1^2+2^2+3^2+...+2018^2+2019^2$
What is remainder if we divide $C$ by $6$?

zero(0), Z-E-R-O.

Correct answer is $2$
We can easily get the total value of $C$ by using the formula of series.
Then it is an easy Modular arithmatic. ### Re: Devide by $6$

$VETO$.Now I can see $4$.

I mean at first I was wrong. Then， I've tried to solve it and found $4$.. Now，I think I'm wrong. ### Re: Devide by $6$

$****VETO****$
$S_{n^{2}}=\dfrac {n\left( n+1\right) \left( 2n+1\right) }{6}$
So, $S_{2019^{2}}=\dfrac {2019\times 2020\times 4025}{6}$
$\Rightarrow S_{2019^{2}}=2735913250$
Now, we can easily find the remainder $4$ .

This answer is wrong. Nabila was right.
We can write any number in this form: $(6n+x) : x \in {(1,2,3,4,5)}$
So, by squaring them, we get:
$(6n+1)^2 \equiv 1$
$(6n+1)^2 \equiv 4$
$(6n+3)^2 \equiv 3$
$(6n+4)^2 \equiv 4$
$(6n+5)^2 \equiv 1$
$(6n)^2 \equiv 0$ mod $(6)$
So the pattern of the remainder is: $1,4,3,4,1,0$
$\lfloor {\frac {2019}{6}} \rfloor = 336.$ There are $336$ such groups.
$(1+4+3+4+1+0) \times 336 \equiv 1 \times 0 \equiv 0$ mod $(6)$
$1^2+2^2+...+2016^2 \equiv 0$ mod $(6)$
$\blacktriangleright (1^2+2^2+...+2016^2)+2017^2+2018^2+2019^2 \equiv 0+1+4+3 \equiv 8 \equiv 2$ mod $(6)$ The problem was: $(2n+1)=2 \times 2019 +1=4039$
