Prove by contradiction: If an integer n has the form 3K+1, then it does not have the form 9L+5.

Prove by contradiction: If an integer n has the form 3K+1, then it does not have the form 9L+5.

I can't figure out how to prove that statement. Any help would be great.

Full Question: The coordinates for a rhombus are given (2a, 0), (0, 2b), (-2a, 0), (0,-2b). Write a plan to prove that the midpoints of the sides of a rhombus determine a rectangle using coordinate geometry...

I know to like assume that (x^5)+(e^x)=0 has two distinct roots and then find the contradiction. But am stuck.

Statements line WXY m<WXY = 180° m<WXZ = 135° m<WXY = m<WXZ + m<ZXY 180° = 135° + m<ZXY 45° = m<ZXY m<ZXY = 45° Reasons Given...
