Note that can be factored into . If is even, then . If , then , and if , then . That means for all positive , is divisible by .
Lemma 2: is divisible by 3
Again, note that can be factored into . If , then . If , then . If , then . That means for all positive , is divisible by .
Because is divisible by and , must be divisible by .
