Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You give me examples and I will do it for you, I don't know your level. If I say If 8n+1 is a perfect square what can you say about n then this question can go above your level. So you need to tell me what you r level is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ha ha. No not that. The answer is "2n can't be a perfect square" or "\[\sqrt (8n+1)\]" is always odd.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08(1)+1=9 8(3)+1=25 8(6)+1=49 8(10)+1=81 all of them are perfect squares. what then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The question was, what is the property of n, when 8n+1 is a perfect square. What you are doing is just putting values and seeing if they are satisfying the relation I gave you. But thats not the problem. The problem is to prove the two answer statement I gave you. i.e. "2n can't be a perfect square" or "(√8n+1) is always odd." I didn't get them by guess work, I proved them, and that is what is expected.
