Well, I have been looking through some old problems from famous math contests and a lot of them seem to have problems that have the number of the current year in them, so in the spirit of these math contests I came up with such a problem. I actually was unable to solve the last challenge that I posted. I kept approaching it in different ways and thinking that I had a proof, but there was always something wrong with it. However, in my efforts to solve that problem I discovered a few patterns, and this problem is the result of my hard work: Prove that the equation has no solutions in positive integers such that none of the are divisible by 503.
