Powerful and consecutive (Posted on 2010-08-09) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Powerful numbers (4,8,9,16,25,27... )are defined as follows: if a prime p divides n then p2 must also divide n.
(8,9) is a couple of two consecutive numbers,both of them being powerful.
Find another pair(s) like that.

The more the merrier!!

Some Thoughts An interesting remark ***** Spoiler | Comment 10 of 16 |

8,288,675,9800 ....

a sequence of p.n.  such that p.n.+1 is a p.n as well. 

 

It is easy to see that this sequence is infinite:
if n is in the sequence, so is 4n*(n+1).
