Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1X=2 and Y=29... though I'll want to learn the legitimate mathematical solution...lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5\(y = \sqrt{x^7 + 713}\) x, y both are primes, clearly y > 2, so y is odd prime. since 713 is odd, we need x^7 to be even to make sqrt(x^7+713) become an odd number since x is a prime only way x^7 to be even is x=2 so olny 1 solutution (2, 29)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Nice! right. there's only one even prime...;lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but how can we say when y is even x is odd when y is odd x is even. ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1quote @ganeshie8 : ＇clearly y > 2, so y is odd prime.＇ lol bruteforcing with a program is really stupid come to think of it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@sauravshakya how can we say that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When y is even y^2 is also even and 713 is odd. And odd + even is odd

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When y is odd , y^2 is also odd and 713 is also odd. And 0dd + odd is even.
