Hi, Solve : 1/ $\displaystyle n,k\in \mathbb{N}, 29+2^n=3^k$ 2/ $\displaystyle n,k\in \mathbb{N}, 1+2^n=3^k$ 3/ $\displaystyle a,b,c\in \mathbb{N}, 2^a+3^b=5^c$ Cordially. Last edited by skipjack; July 24th, 2017 at 02:58 PM.

For 2, n=3, k=2. For 3, a=b=c=1.

(3). (a, b, c) = (1, 1, 1) or (4, 2, 2)

Well, at least (2) is solved. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalan%27s_conjecture
