  • Proof for n^2 is odd if n is odd?

    Trying to learn how to write proofs. I decided to practice a direct proof approach. axiom 1: n is even if n=2k for some integer k axiom 2: n is odd if n=2k + 1 for some integer k Theorem: If n is an odd integer, then n^2 is an odd integer. Proof: Let n = 2k+1, for some ineteger k n^2 = n * n = (2k+1) * (2k+1) = 4k^2 + 4k +... show more
