TopNewestHi;

It looks like a homework question and it appears that your book/teacher expects you to say that \[(k,L) = (1,3)\] is the only solution.

However, there are more solutions. The next solution is 141 digits.

To verify this, you'll need a Computer Algebra System or a multi-precision programming language.

Furthermore, I conjecture that there are infinite such solutions – Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 2 years, 7 months ago

@Gaurav Sharma , I am sorry. {k -> 181, L -> 627}, {k -> 13, L -> 45} also works. There are many small solutions too. – Agnishom Chattopadhyay · 2 years, 7 months ago
