Homework (22 Oct 2011)

Here’re the problems:

  1. A square integer N ends in 4 identical digits d in its decimal representation, where 1 \le d \le 9. Find all possible values of d. For each admissable value of d, find a possible N.
  2. N is a perfect square whose second-to-last digit is odd. What can its last digit be?
  3. Find all positive integers (x, y) for which \frac 1 x - \frac 1 y = \frac 1 6.
  4. Solve for y^4 = x^4 + 45x^2, where x and y are positive integers.
  5. Prove that the congruence x^2 \equiv 1 \pmod {2^r}, r \ge 3 has exactly 4 solutions modulo 2^r.
That’s all. 🙂
