I would like to show that if a prime number P mod 8 is a) 1 or 7 or b) 3 or 5 then(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) [tex]\frac{(P+1)}{2}(1-sqrt{2})(3+sqrt{8})^\frac{P-1}{2}+ \frac{(P+1)}{2}(1+sqrt{2})(3-sqrt{8})^\frac{P-1}{2} = (\frac{P-3}{2} + 2)[/tex] mod P

b) [tex]\frac{(P+1)}{2}(1-sqrt{2})(3+sqrt{8})^\frac{P-1}{2}+ \frac{(P+1)}{2}(1+sqrt{2})(3-sqrt{8})^\frac{P-1}{2} = (\frac{P-3}{2} - 2)[/tex] mod P

Any suggestions
