1. if ‘a’ and ‘b’ are two positive integers then

where,

0 ≤ r < b

let a be a positive integers and b = 6

where,

0 ≤ r < 6

from above we can say that remainder is less than 6 and equal or greater than 0

so the possible values of r be

by putting values of divisor(b) and remainder in equation

putting r = 0, a = 6q + 0

a = 6q

it is divided by 2 so it is an number.

putting r = 1, a = 6q + 1

6q is divided by 2 but 1 is not divided.

it is not divided by 2 so it is an number.

putting r = 2, a = 6q + 2

it is divided by 2 so it is an number.

putting r = 3, a = 6q + 3

it is not divided by 2 so it is an number.

putting r = 4, a = 6q + 4

it is divided by 2 so it is an number

putting r = 5, a = 6q + 5

it is not divided by 2 so it is an number.

so by these we can say that any positive odd integer is of the form 6q+1, or 69 +3, or 69 + 5, where q is some integer.

2. lets us start with taking a,where a is a postive off integer

We apply the division algorithm with a and b=6

since 0 less than or equal to r or lessthan 6 the possible remainders are 012345

that is

a can be

6q+1or6q+3or6q+5

where quotient

however since a is odd a cannot be 6q,6q+2,6q+4since they are divisble by 2

therefore the any odd integer is of the form of 6q+1,6q+3,6q+5
