1. Step-by-step explanation:

since 6 is a even number when we multiply it with any number we get the answer as a even number and when we add a odd number to a even number we will all ways get odd number.

Hence proved

Hope you understand

According to Euclid’s Division Lemma if we have two positive integers a and b, then there exist unique integers q and r which satisfies the condition a = bq + r where 0 ≤ r < b.

Let a be the positive odd integer which when divided by 6 gives q as quotient and r as remainder.

According to Euclid’s division lemma

a = bq + r

a = 6q + r………………….(1)

where, (0 ≤ r < 6)

So r can be either 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Case 1:

If r = 1, then equation (1) becomes

a = 6q + 1

The Above equation will be always as an odd integer.

Case 2:

If r = 3, then equation (1) becomes

a = 6q + 3

The Above equation will be always as an odd integer.

Case 3:

If r = 5, then equation (1) becomes

a = 6q + 5

The above equation will be always as an odd integer.

∴ Any odd integer is of the form  6q + 1 or 6q + 3 or 6q + 5.

Hence proved.
