I searched around and couldn't find anything like this, so here's my questions:
Show that if an integer x is the sum of two squares, then
proof:
for a,b integers
Assume . (going for a contradiction here)
-subsitution
-def. of congruence
for some k int - def. of divides
So, I have to some how show that this ISN'T true. I'm not sure if I am even going about this correctly by contradiction, but it just seems like what I would need to do.
Thanks
