By inspection on 4(n + 1) = (2n6)!, n = 5 works.

To me, "enabler" is a word invented by the guilty to shift the blame from where it rightly belongs.

He is a panhandler. Why did you bother making the points in post # 3? You just stated facts that he doesn't care about. Last edited by Math Message Board tutor; October 1st, 2014 at 08:51 AM.

I did so publicly because I have grave doubts that he/she would take the time to read a PM or VM. Also, as a moderator, one gets tired of having to come repetitively along behind the same lazy user to fix their useless titles. I have mentioned the "title issue" more than once in the past to mared, but it falls on deaf ears. So, please indulge my venting of frustration.
