I was trying to work out whether or not 2n+3 divides (2n+1)! for positive integers n. After trying a few cases I think it does not work but I don't know how a proof for this would work. I tried induction but it got really messy. I also tried rephrasing it, such as putting it into modular equation but have had no luck. My other question is about a congruence. The statement is that (1-x)p-1 is congruent to 1 + x + ... + xp-2 + xp-1 modulo p where p is an odd prime. I tried to use the binomial theorem to prove this but couldn't finish it because it got really messy and also I have no experience in number theory. Any in understanding and working out these statements would be appreciated.
