Perfect Powered Temperature (Posted on 2022-01-09) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Each of M and N is a nonnegative integer such that:

Mo Celsius = No Fahrenheit.

Determine all possible values of N<10 such that N is a perfect power.

*** F = (9/5)*C +32, where F denotes degree Fahrenheit and C denotes degree Celsius.

I think there must be a typo in the problem, because if M >= 0 and N >= 0 there are no such integers, let alone perfect powers.  For any Fahrenheit temp below 32, the Celsius value is negative.
So I tested Celsius values from -17 up to +10^7 degrees C.
