 Sum of Powers (Posted on 2008-04-21)
The numbers 184 and 345 have a special property. Their sum, the sum of their squares, and the sum of their cubes are all perfect squares:
184 + 345 = 23^2
184^2 + 345^2 = 391^2
184^3 + 345^3 = 6877^2

Find another primitive pair of non-zero integers with the same property. Note, a primitive solution is a solution which is not a multiple of any smaller solution.
If you have extended precision math software, try to find a third or fourth primitive solution.

Tip: one of the numbers may be negative.

You have 2 miscalculations.
4²+5²=41 not 49
4³+5³=189 not 289
