Surely it will be so. · 5 months, 3 weeks ago

What does Spagnoletti mean when writing "there are only 2 solutions which are s + r = p"? What is s and what is r and what is the equation we are supposed to be solving? (Since the first is assumed correct for all x if I am reading it right) · 6 months ago

Apparently I am just dumb, because I don't understand the next one either - a^x+b^x=2^y 1^1+3^1=2^2 a≠b · 6 months ago

Yes probably it is positive integers other than 1. @Sharky Kesa please reply and change the problem title to EPP set 3 #1 · 6 months ago

Guys I will be inactive on Brilliant for 6-7 days as I am going on holiday trip....:( :( :( :( · 6 months ago

After shivam jadhav's problem is solved , I think we must move on to new fresh , note ....

Till Shivam's problem unsolved you can post extra participation problems ......... anybody who wants to ....but only 1 EPP is allowed . per regular question.

Keep this in Mind !!!! · 6 months ago

I think that you can start note-2 soon. There are well over 100 comments and it is very hard to see to where someone commented. · 5 months, 4 weeks ago

I think we will start the new note after say problem 15 as the contest started just few days back and it will be difficult for some people to start from the second note. The note can be made better if we all delete all the unnecessary comments.

I think that it will be better if every person is allowed to post 1 EPP per regular question. · 6 months ago

okay ! · 6 months ago

I still think that there can be some conclusion for EPP problem 1 . We are getting a number which is divisible by 2000 which has one factor which is given number , ...So there can be some relation ... · 6 months ago
