There are 3 positive integers a, b, c such that 1/c=1/a+1/b. If the greatest common divisor of a, b, c is 1, then what type of number must a+b be(e.g square number, cube number, triangular number...)?

re: Possible solution, first posting by xdog)
Your examples fit quite nicely into the second case i described, with
x=2, y=5, k=l=7
x=2, y=11, k=l=13
x=3, y=35, k=l=38
The weakness in my argument is in the last part from wlog let y=kx onwards, which clearly needs more thought.
