Ummm ... don't just drop a pearl of wisdom in passing ... join up and give us a few (not TOO hard) puzzles, or help out at the "Help Me" forum. (Though things may be quietening down here soon, as Summer Holidays are nearly upon us!)

]]>so, a formal proof:

p be such a prime number,

=> p+1 = n^2, where n is natural =>

=> p = n^2 - 1

=> p = (n-1)(n+1), but hey, p is prime!

=> that can only be if n-1 = 1, that is p = 3

=> only one such prime number]]>

Surely the number 3 qualifies ... add 1 you get 4 which is 2*2

So the answer is 1, isn't it?

]]>lol! More like your trying to get the ansewer for this weeks Lenny Conundrem on neopets.com!

I'm much rather have the extra 10 points on the exam, then try and win pretty much nothing on neopets.com. Can't help it if my math teacher used that question as well.

Anywho...just so the admin who helped with the question knows..the answer is 0.

]]>Do I get a prize for answering it, then?

]]>Thanks a bunch! I really appreciate it. We get an extra 10 points on the final exam if we get it right! College Math is so much harder then high school math!

There was only 2 minutes between your first and last post ... this is a forum, not a phone conversation

When you post a question here you need to give people a chance to come on the forum, read your message and reply. This can be many hours to days sometimes, but we will do the best we can to help.

So, can you tell us what your problem is with division - is it long division?

Have you tried reading our pages on it starting here

And you can practice with these [url=]worksheets[/url] - there are normal division and long division worksheets, and you can view them with or without answers.
