    Care to share your solution? It might help out someone else.

    Edit: Ummmm... You might need to see if this is the correct question. m = 4 gives 4^2 = 16 is divisible by a = 8. But 4 is not divisible by 8.

    It isn't your fault. The problem statement is flawed as I demonstrated. Unfortunately I haven't a clue what was intended. Where did you get the problem from?

    Re: Analysis

    I believe what was intended is that "if n^2 is divisible by prime number a then n is divisible by a". The simplest way to prove that is to look at the prime fatorizations of n and n^2.
