Question17:

Show that any positive odd integer is of the form , where q is some integer.

Answer:

Let be any positive integer and . Then, by Euclid’s algorithm,

for some integer , and because .

Therefore, or or or or

Also, , where is a positive integer

, where is an integer

6q + 5 = (6q + 4) + 1 = 2 (3q + 2) + 1 = 2k3 + 1, where k3 is an integer

Clearly, are of the form, where k is an integer.

Therefore, 6q + 1, 6q + 3, 6q + 5 are not exactly divisible by . Hence, these expressions of numbers are odd numbers.

And therefore, any odd integer can be expressed in the form ,

Or
