Up to 35 (Posted on 2004-11-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5
S is a set of N distinct positive integers such that no member of S has a prime factor greater than 35. Let P be the set of products of members of S taken 2 at a time. (For example, if x, y and z are members of S, then xy, xz and yz will be members of P.)

What is the smallest value of N for which it is certain that P contains a perfect square?
