On generators of multiplicative group

 Generators of multiplicative group \((\mathbb{Z}/2^{\alpha}\mathbb{Z})^*\)

The set of all unit elements in the cyclic group \(\mathbb{Z}/N\mathbb{Z}\) is a group under multiplication modulo \(N\) of order \(\phi(N)\), where \(\phi\) is the Euler-totient function. It is denoted by \((\mathbb{Z}/N\mathbb{Z})^*\).
It is well known that \((\mathbb{Z}/N\mathbb{Z})^*\) is not always cyclic (Primitive element theorem) (See Chater 10, [1]). For example \((\mathbb{Z}/8\mathbb{Z})^*=\{1,3,5,7\}\) is not cyclic. \((\mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z})^*=\{1\}\) and \((\mathbb{Z}/4\mathbb{Z})^*=\{1,3\}\) are trivially cyclic.

Question: Show that for \(\alpha\geq 3\), \((\mathbb{Z}/2^{\alpha}\mathbb{Z})^*\) is generated by \(-1\) and 5?
You may use the following sage code for validating the result:

Some rational thoughts on Irrationality.

Is it true that square root of any positive integer greater than one, which is not a perfect square, is an irrational number?

This question was raised during a discussion with first year degree students.  The motivation was the proof showing the  irrationality of  $\sqrt{2}$.  The discussion took us to the following 'one line' proof: If $n$ is such a number having the rational expression $\sqrt{n}=\frac{a}{b}, \gcd(a,b)=1$, then by the fundamental theorem of arithmetic (unique prime factorization)  $b=1$ and $n$ is a square.
