Just for fun: x^7 = y^2-713 where x and y are prime numbers. Find all the solution of x and y.

    when y is even x is odd when y is odd x is even.

    \(y = \sqrt{x^7 + 713}\) 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)

    quote @ganeshie8 : 'clearly y > 2, so y is odd prime.' lol bruteforcing with a program is really stupid come to think of it.

    When y is even y^2 is also even and 713 is odd. And odd + even is odd

    When y is odd , y^2 is also odd and 713 is also odd. And 0dd + odd is even.
