Some Powers Differ by 2001 (Posted on 2023-09-16) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Find all possible pairs (x,n) of positive integers that satisfy this equation:
xn+1 - (n+1)x = 2001
Prove that no further pair exists that satisfies all the given conditions.

Note: Computer program/excel solver assisted solutions are welcome, but a semi-analytic (p&p and hand calculator) methodology is preferred.
