If (3√3 + 5)^9 = R and [R] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to R, then:
A) [R] is divisible by 10
B) [R^2] is divisible by 512
C) [R] is divisible by 15
D) [R] is an even number
More than one options may be correct.

That is pretty neat! It's clear, then, that R is a multiple of 10. And it's not a multiple of 3, since all the terms are except the last. Therefore R is not a multiple of 15. Any idea how this might determine the truth of statement B? (Other than by evaluating [R], of course.)

PS I have just looked again at statement B, and noticed that it is , not just R. Since , this will be true if R is a multiple of 32. And it is. So B is true after all!
