Solution m, n < 50, corrected | Comment 10 of 13 |
(In reply to m, n < 50 by Steve Herman)

For every n between 1 and 49, there are up to 6 m between 1 and 49 that satisfy the equation.

49 * 6 = 294

But this overcounts, because for n between 1 and 12, there are only 5 positive m that work (1,2,3,4,5).

Total solutions = 294 - 12 = 282, which has the advantage of agreeing with Ady's spoiler.
