Postings from Pieter Post.


The pair (184, 345) possesses the following property:
The sum of the numbers is a square, the sum of their squares is a square
and the sum of their cubes is also a square.

184 + 345 = 232
1842 + 3452 = 3912
1843 + 3453 = 68772

This pair is the only one I could find, at least
with a greatest common divisor of 1.
Naturally (736, 1380) and all quadratic multiples of
(184, 345) fulfil the conditions,
but I could find only one primitive solution.

Maybe someone among my readers has enough computing
capacity to discover a second pair ?

Delighted to see the presentation made by Mr Pieter Post
regarding the admiring properties of certain pair of numbers
such as 184,345; 736,1380.
My attempts to find second set of such pair of numbers have
not fully materialised so far.
Selected pairs from dozens of my humble findings are enclosed
for your kind perusal.
These were found by manual manipulations on Excel sheet.

889 + 4440 = 732
8892 + 44402 = not square
8893 + 44403 = 2970372

2044 + 3285 = 732
20442 + 32852 = 38692
20443 + 32853 = not square

2409 + 2920 = 732
24092 + 29202 = not square
24093 + 29203 = 1971732

3042 + 3042 = 782 {identical !}
30422 + 30422 = not square
30423 + 30423 = 2372762

1729 + 5160 = 832 {powers of Ramanujan's 1729}
17292 + 51602 = not square
17293 + 51603 = 3775672

I can submit to you these set of pairs on reaching 100^2.

Patrick,
I only just saw WON Plate 198 today.
Some initial things I notice are

(184 * 2) - 345 = 23

391 / 23 = 17

6877 / 23 = 299

I don't know if these things mean anything or not
but they are curious.

I wish to share the following general inference
from my studies of the postings by Mr Pieter Post:

When sum of two identical numbers is a square,
sum of their respective cubes always is a square

as in:

50 + 50 = 10^2
50^3 + 50^3 = 500^2

6272 + 6272 = 112^2
6272^3 + 6272^3 = 702464^2

2238728 + 2238728 = 2116^2
2238728^3 + 2238728^3 = 4737148448^2

Generalized:

A^2/2 + A^2/2 = A^2
(A^2/2)^3 + (A^2/2)^3 =
(A^6/8) + (A^6/8) = A^6/4 Square of (A^3/2)
