How many k satisfy $\displaystyle \;$$\displaystyle 2^n n=k^2$ Example , $\displaystyle 2^7 7=11^2$ $\displaystyle \; $$\displaystyle n,k \in N$ Last edited by idontknow; April 20th, 2017 at 09:44 AM.

I can't prove it yet but it certainly looks like $(n,k)=(7,11)$ is the only integer pair such that $2^nn=k^2$

What about (n,k) = (1,1) or (n,k) = (0,1) [if you allow n = 0]?
