1. Answer: Let n = 5q + 1               where q is a positive integer

∴ n2 = (5q + 1)2

= 25q2 + 10q + 1

= 5(5q2 + 2q) + 1

= 5m + 1,                                     where m is some integer

Hence, the square of any positive integer of the form 5q + 1 is of the same form.

Plz. mark my answer as the brainliest. I really need it very much.
