What are the consequences of such equality on factorization of odd semi-primes? Go ahead! There is something very important to derive from this equality. Good luck! I see you in 2018.

Web link excerpt follows To prove any number, X, can be the side of some Pythagorean triangle, we use the m,n generating method on two cases: X even and X odd. if X is even: let n=1 and m=X/2 then the side generated by 2 m n is X If X is odd: then we can halve it and let m = (X+1)/2 and n = (X–1)/2 so that the side generated by m2 – n2 = (m – n)(m + n) = 1×X is X End of web link excerpt I found the above proof at the web link below Pythagorean Triangles and Triples Thanks from mobel

It's well known from the old past 300 a.c. approx. I forgot the name of the 2 old greek mathematician, one discover the first the other 100 year later discover the second.

Thanks god mobel is back !

No one got it! No one will anyway.
I gave you a hint. Be aware that there is lot or work to do before building a new algorithm of factorization.

So I see you in 2018.
