Show that if n is an odd positive integer then n^2 = 1(mod 8).

I see that any odd square has 1 as a remainder when calculated. Example: 49 = 7 * 7 = 1(mod 4), and any odd number squared equals an odd number. Let 2k represent all positive even integers. So n^2 = 1(mod 2k) for all odd positive integers.

Is this an acceptable proof?
