COMMENTS

The case C=15 of finding k such that C*k+1 and (C+4)*k+2 are both perfect squares (A160682).

The 2 equations are equivalent to the Pell equation x^2 - 285*y^2 = 1, with x = (285*k+17)/2 and y = A*B/2.

FORMULA

B(t+2) = 17*B(t+1) - B(t).

B(t) = ((285+19*w)*((17+w)/2)^(t-1)+(285-19*w)*((17-w)/2)^(t-1))/570 where w=sqrt(285).

G.f.: (1+x)*x/(1-17*x+x^2).

MAPLE

t:=0: for b from 1 to 1000000 do a:=sqrt((15*b^2+4)/19):

if (trunc(a)=a) then t:=t+1: n:=(b^2-1)/19: print(t, a, b, n): end if: end do:
