Question

# Two numbers $$x$$ and $$y$$ are such that when divided by $$6$$ they leave remainders $$4$$ and $$5$$, respectively. Find the remainder when $$\displaystyle (x^{2}+y^{2})$$ is divided by $$6$$.

Solution

## Let $$\displaystyle x=6k_{1}+4\: and\: y=6k_{2}+5$$$$\Rightarrow x^{2}+y^{2}=(6k_{1}+4)^{2}+(6k_{2}+5)^{2}$$$$=\displaystyle 36k{_{1}}^{2}+48k_{1}+16+36k{_{2}}^{2}+60k_{2}+25$$$$=\displaystyle 36k{_{1}}^{2}+48k_{1}+36k{_{2}}^{2}+60k_{2}+41$$Obviously when this is divided by $$6$$, the remainder will be $$5$$.Mathematics
