Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to proof the following question.

If a is an integer, divisible by 4, then a is the difference of two perfect squares

now by the definition of divisibility if 4 divides a then there is a natural number k such that

a = 4k

Can someone how should I do it with direct proof by using if then technique?
