 Square Temperatures (Posted on 2016-06-29)
Each of M+N and M-N is a nonzero perfect square and:

Mo Celsius= No Fahrenheit

Find the smallest value of M+N. What is the next smallest value of M+N?

*** F = 9*C/5 + 32, where F and C respectively represents Fahrenheit and Celsius scales of temperatures.

 Assuming... Comment 2 of 2 |
In all instances, either both Fahrenheit and Celsius are negative, making the sum negative, or the Fahrenheit value is larger than the Celsius value, so I assume that the difference is meant to be N-M, that is, the Fahrenheit reading minus the Celsius reading. The results make that assumption:

`   M       N         M+N   N-M    40     104        144     64   680    1256       1936    576 58280  104936     163216  46656633640 1140584    1774224 506944`
