I recently happened upon a problem that I cannot make any headway on. Here it is:
Using the factorization of when and is odd, show that is not prime.
I found this video, , that shows this, but, unfortunately, I don't think that it uses the factorization of when and is odd and I don't know how to adapt it so that it does (if that is possible at all).
Thank you. All help with this problem is appreciated.
