Show that there is no positive integer x and y such that x^2 - y^2=1
Pls show detailed working.
Suppose that each of $m~\&~n$ is an integer and $m>n$. You must answer the questions and post the answers.
a) Suppose $m^2-n^2=1$ How does that tell us that $m>n~\&~n\ne 1?$ (you must post answers)
b) The fact that $n\ne 1$ means that $n\ge 2$ Explain why.
c) $ \begin{align*}m+n&>2n ~\text{WHY}?? \\2n&\ge 4~\text{WHY}??\\(m+n)(m-n) &\ge 4(m-n)~\text{WHY}??\\1 &\ge 4(m-n)\text{WHY}?? \end{align*}$
Where is the contradiction and what is contradicted?
