Hello i don't know how to do this problem ... plesae help me out ... thanks determine the smallest positive integers, n , which satisfies the equation
n where b is the square of an odd integer
i thoguht about replacing b by x thank you very much ! david Hi David,
If you replace b by x ^{2}(n + 2) = x^{2}
From this equation you can see that n + 2 is a square and hence n must be 2 less than a square. Cheers,Harley |
