### Re: A nice diophantine equation.

Check the post above you.

But now I am getting

That one works!!!!! Shortest one yet!

But if you use knowledge of landau notation you can see how we could derived it from my answer!

Ah, I know what my mistake was! I calculated Gamma(3) to be 6!!!

Yes, it looks like it should be n^2/60.

### Re: A nice diophantine equation.

Do you see how we could have gotten it from mine? The n^2/60 term is dominant for large n.

A really cool answer don't you think!

I will see you later, chores to do and thanks for working on the problem. You did great work with the formula.
