I think it could be solved if some write a code for that, but if some one directly find those 2 numbers then the person math. genius

generates prime numbers so we have.

This what I have though of so far but don't have time to continue so what you can come up with.

So we have . What do you mean be evenly divisible? - May 6th 2010, 04:45 PMrahulnaidu
am also trying for some time now couldn't figure it out.

if it is divisible by 2 times,4times,6 times, like that

If e is odd, then e is of the form .

. Now we have an odd number divides an odd number.

Are we actually looking for numbers or just solving a general case?
