OPC 2 Problem 4

\(4. \text{Let } d \text{ be any positive integer not equal to } 2,5, or 13. \\ \text{ Show that one can find distinct } a,b \text{ in the set} 2,5,13,d \text{ such that }\ ab-1 \text{is not a perfect square.} \)

Give different methods of solving this. This was a problem to the OPC 2. The OPC 2 has already ended. OPC 3 will be released soon.Calvin sir suggested me to do this.So Thanks to him.\(\ddot\smile\)
