\(A. 121\) \(B. 122\) \(C. 123\) \(D. 125\) \(E. 130\) the one point you require to know is that 11^2=121.. \(A. 121... 0^2+11^2\) \(B. 122... 1^2+11^2\) \(C. 123... ??? you require to check if 10^2, 9^2 or 8^2 can be added to any other square to get 123 .. NO\) \(D. 125.. 2^2+11^2\) \(E. 130... 3^2+11^2\) C

\(A. 121\) \(B. 122\) \(C. 123\) \(D. 125\) \(E. 130\) Let's do this systematically: 0² = 0 1² = 1 2² = 4 3² = 9 4² = 16 5² = 25 6² = 36 7² = 49 8² = 64 9² = 81 10² = 100 11² = 121 A. 121 = 0² + 11² ELIMINATE A B. 122 = 1² + 11² ELIMINATE B C. 123 = can't eliminate D. 125 = 10² + 5² ELIMINATE D E. 130 = 9² + 7² ELIMINATE E Answer: C Cheers, Brent

\(A. 121\) \(B. 122\) \(C. 123\) \(D. 125\) \(E. 130\) This can be easily solved by taking one of the Integer as 11. Hence, C.

=> Squares of even integers, \((2k)^2 = 4k^2\) have the remainder \(0\), when they are divided by \(4\). Squares of odd integers, \((2k+1)^2 = 4k^2 + 4k + 1\) have the remainder \(1\), when they are divided by \(4\). Hence, squares of integers can have remainders of \(0\) or \(1\) only, when they are divided by \(4\). So, the sum of two squares of integers cannot have the remainder of \(3\) when it is divided by \(4\). Thus, \(123\) cannot be the value of \(x^2+y^2\). Therefore, the answer is C. Answer: C

\(A. 121\) \(B. 122\) \(C. 123\) \(D. 125\) \(E. 130\) Let’s test our answer choices: A) 121 121 = 0^2 + 11^2 B) 122 122 = 1^1 + 11^2 C) 123 There are no two perfect squares that sum to 123. Answer: C
