Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

Also in the sequence: 72900000 = 2^5*3^6*5^5, 51018336 = 2^5*3^13, 6083264512 = 2^14*13^5, 916132832 = 2^5*31^5, 6530347008 = 2^12*3^13, 16307453952 = 2^26*3^5, 233861123808 = 2^5*3^9*13^5, 850305600000 = 2^9*3^12*5^5.

Consider a solution (x,y,z) of x^5 + y^6 = z^7. For any m, (x*m^42, y*m^35, z*m^30) is also a solution. Reciprocally, if (x/m^42, y/m^35, z/m^30) is a triple of integers for some m, then this is also a solution. We call primitive a solution for which there is no such m > 1.

When S = a^5 + b^12/4 is a square, then z = b^6/2 + sqrt(S) is a solution, with x = a*z and y = b*z. All known solutions are of this form. Sequence A303267 lists the y-values, thus equal to b*z where z = a(n), with corresponding x = a*z = (a(n)^7 - A303267(n)^6)^(1/5).

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 8192 = 2^13 is in the sequence because (2^13)^7 = (2^18)^5 + (2^15)^6, using 18*5 = 15*6 = 90 = 13*7 - 1 and 1 + 1 = 2.

PROG

(PARI) is(z)=for(y=1, sqrtnint(-1+z=z^7, 6), ispower(z-y^6, 5)&&return(y))

/* Code below for illustration only, not guaranteed to give a complete list. */
