For how many integers x4 + x3 + x2 + x + 1 is a perfect square?


For how many integers, n, the expression n2 + n + 4 is a perfect square?




for only 1 integer ?

4 integers

-3 , -1 , 0 and 4. 

Sir please share the approach


Q.How many natural numbers between 1 and 100 have exactly 4 factors?


For exactly 4 factors . Result comes from following 2 forms

2*2---> corresponds to the number of form (a*b) where a,b are primes
and 4 ---> corresponds to the number of form (a^3)

Now let's take each form one by one
a*b form
2*3, 2*3, 2*5 ...........2*47 (14 numbers) (14 primes from 3 to 47)
then 3*5, 3*7,3*11........ 3*31 (9 numbers) (9 primes from 5 to 31)
then 5*7, 5*11.......5*19 (5 numbers)
then 7*11, 7*13 (2 numbers)
total number of this form = 30 numbers

next is a^3 form
only 3 numbers are there 2^3, 3^3, 4^3
so total 33 numbers have exactly 4 factors


10000! =(100!)^k ×p where k and p are integers. What can be the maximum value of K? 



On planet Mars the people use a certain number system to the base 'n' (n>2) , kyes a resident of the planet, one day received thrice of his daily wage because the digits of this wage, which was a 2 digit number, were reversed. 

Q1. What is the least possible value of n? 

Q2. What is the second least possible value of n? 

Q3. If n is least possible value then what is the wages that kyes receives on a normal day (in base n)?

Q4. If the base system that is being used on the mars is the second least possible value of N then what is the sum of all the value  of wages that kyes can receive for his work (in base n)? 


product is an integer, hence x and y must take same value.
now first factorize 2016
2016= 63*32
so we can take the above expression as
now p could be such that inside we are left with a factor of 63.
Hence when p =43 , we are left with 21 the k will become 3
and p=61, then we are left with 3, then k will become 21.
These are the only 2 values hence sum of values of p is 104


median is the middle position
Now when increase of 10 changes the avg by 2. Hence there are 5 terms.
10, m-4, m , 32, 32
m is in the middle and m-4 immediate left. because in the second case when m-8 is taken instead m, then the median is m-4.
now sum of the terms should be 22*5= 110
hence m+m-4 = 36
hence m = 20
