My numbers (Posted on 2014-11-14) Difficulty: 2 of 5
Find my two numbers:

1. Both are positive integers..
2. Their difference is a prime.
3. Their product is a perfect square.
4. Their sum's last digit is 3.

Rem: It was solved by me immediately upon presentation by a friend.

I leave it to you to check whether there is more than one solution.

Some Thoughts re(2): All of the solutions....even shorter Comment 3 of 3 |
(In reply to re: All of the solutions by Steve Herman)

even shorter:

for a^2-b^2 to be prime, a+b must be prime, and a-b=1, so we are looking for pairs of successive numbers a>b.

1st trial (2,1)==> check if 4+1 ends by 3 ;  no good

2nd trial (3,2)==> check if 9+4 ends by 3 ;  bingo...

easy to show lack of other solutions
