Looking for n (Posted on 2004-02-24) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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.

(In reply to I think i have one by Juggler)

I've just realised my (sorry Bill Gates's) Microsoft Excel cant add up

10134671 x 10134671 = 102711556278241

Sorry, i'm just going to chastise myself. lol
