Write $n^5 + 5 = (n^5  5^5) + (5^5 + 5)$.

Can you show that $n+5$ always divides $n^5 + 5^5$ by factorizing the latter? Then what does that mean for $n^5 + 5 = (n^5 + 5^5)  (5^5 + 5)$?

Getting the signs right would help. One can use the factor theorem or the remainder theorem.

Senior Member Joined: May 2016 From: USA Posts: 691 Thanks: 284  $\dfrac{n^5 + 5}{n + 5} =$ $n^4  5n^3 + 25n^2  125n + 625  \dfrac{3120}{n + 5}.$ Simple division. $n \in \mathbb Z \implies x = n^4  5n^3 + 25n^2  125n + 625 \in \mathbb Z.$ $n > 3115 \implies n + 5 > 3120 > 0 \implies 1 > \dfrac{3120}{n + 5} > 0 \implies$ $x + 1 > x + \dfrac{3120}{n + 5} > x \implies x + \dfrac{3120}{n + 5} \not \in \mathbb Z$ $\therefore n \le 3115.$
