Let n be the smallest positive integer such that n(n+1)(n+2)(n+3) can be expressed as either a perfect square or a perfect cube (not necessarily both).
Find n, or prove that this is not possible.
Let n=3182,
given n the following equation would be
sqrt(3182*3183*3184*3185)=sqrt(102711556278240)=10134671
the above has been done with microsoft excel so if the maths is wrong, dont blame me!
