First answer (by Anders) on http://www.quora.com/Mathematics/How-would-I-show-that-49-divides-8-n-7n-1-for-all-n-ge-0 Can anyone explain it to me? Hints'd be appreciated.

I am not concerned with problem as much as its solution on Quora. And No @nincompoop

thats not a true statement of binomial theorem\[8^n=(1+7)^n=\sum_{k=0}^{n} \left(\begin{matrix}n \\ k\end{matrix}\right) 7^n\]right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I am pretty sure, it is.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oops sorry that should be\[8^n=(1+7)^n=\sum_{k=0}^{n} \left(\begin{matrix}n \\ k\end{matrix}\right) 7^k\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh yeah. k. lol
anonymous
  • anonymous
but that's not what concerns me. it's the first answer by Anders i am unable to understand.
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh sorry man lol :) im sooo blind
anonymous
  • anonymous
i cant understand it :)

\[ 8^n=(1+7)^n=\sum_{k=0}^{n} \left(\begin{matrix}n \\ k\end{matrix}\right) 7^n = 1 + 7n + O(7^{(n \geq 2)})\]

Sai Ganesh explanation also no good, right?
experimentX
  • experimentX
\( O(7^{(n \geq 2)}) \) is always divisible by 49

Yes, sorry, I was directing at Ishaan (he wants an "octal" explanation)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah. It didn't help my puny brain much :(
anonymous
  • anonymous
@him1618 maybe you can?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the explanation is good enough
anonymous
  • anonymous
I have to say that the binomial answer is much more natural, it would not occur to me to set out on an octal adventure for that particular problem....
anonymous
  • anonymous
true
anonymous
  • anonymous
Specifically, I don't understand how did he conclude 'The rest can be divided into equal groups based on their first two nonzero digits.'
anonymous
  • anonymous
... 49* equal groups ...
anonymous
  • anonymous
7*7
anonymous
  • anonymous
you got rid of the 0's so you got 7 digits left you can set, right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
right.
anonymous
  • anonymous
So if all the numbers are divisible into 49 groups, then divisibilty by 49 follows. At least, that's what I think it says.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, one silly doubt. Why is he using only first two digits for grouping?
anonymous
  • anonymous
because 7*7 = 49
anonymous
  • anonymous
i was acting foolishly yesterday :( thanks.
