    finitely many squares sequence

    How to prove the following:

    Let p be a prime p=3,5 (mod8). Show that the
    sequence n!+n^p-b+2 contains at most finitely many squares.

    Should I build a contardiction or prove it directly? I really need some help

    [QUOTE=Sonifa;803192]
    For correction:
    the sequence should be n!+n^p-n+2/[QUOTE]
