COMMENTS

(x,y) = (0,0) is this solution. Consider x > 0. If x is square, x^2 + 20 is square and we get (x,y) = (4,12). If x is not square, x = i^2*j where j is squarefree. j | x^2 + 20, so j is 2,5 or 10. If j = 2 or 10, there is not such (x,y). If j = 5, (y/5)^2 = i^2*(5*i^4 + 4). So 5*i^4 + 4 = k^2. That is k^2 - 5*i^4 = 4. i^2 is a square Fibonacci number. i^2 = 1 or 144, so x = 5 or 720.

EXAMPLE

  0^3 + 20*  0 =         0 =     0^2.

  4^3 + 20*  4 =       144 =    12^2.

  5^3 + 20*  5 =       225 =    15^2.

720^3 + 20*720 = 373262400 = 19320^2.
