    Gauss's Lemma

    Is there a formula for evaluating the number of negative residues in Guass's Lemma? Is it given by the ceiling function of (p-1)/4?

    Re: Gauss's Lemma

    p=11
    a=9
    number of negative residues: 2
    the ceiling function: 3

    they are not the same, not even the same parity
    Thanks from Euclid and topsquark
