It is helpful, thank you ... but it's also fair to note that the more concise answers by Clement C. and Jack D'Aurizio were posted first.

comment Congruence properties of $a^5+b^5+c^5+d^5+e^5=0$?
My answer, although accepted, contained an error, now corrected by adding a minus sign before $(c^5+d^5+e^5)$.

Correction to include missing minus sign.

comment What is an example of real application of cubic equations?
For similar reasons the maximum power that can be generated by a wind turbine is proportional to the cube of the wind speed.

comment A question about squares
It may be significant that the number of remaining rows in 2013 x 2013 equals (2013 - 1)/4 = 503. That may give a clue to a closed form formula for the number of remaining rows in n x n.

comment A question about squares
A simple example is n = 3 (zero cells remaining since 1 is in row 1, 4 in row 2 and 9 in row 3, one quadratic non-residue (2)). n = 2013 is also an example, since there will be many rows not deleted in the lower regions of the square, the intervals between the larger squares being greater than the length of a row.
