Maybe the question is: Show there don't exist primes of the form ?

There should be a subtle remark made here though. A prime is a natural number, so if we must have that so that we know that is a positive divisor.
Aside from that: for any n,m: n> m what would be required if p is prime.

I don't understand why you're debating oO So the answer's just : there's none !

I would prefer no more replies in this thread until the OP responds. Thankyou.
