    other cases of the problem at "divisible by 40" thread

    I was looking at the "divisible by 40" thread and developed a proof[1], and noticed that I could set a similar problem with 5n+1 and 7n+1 finding that when both are perfect squares, n is divisible by 24 5*24+1 = 11^2, and 7*24+1 = 13^2, if we call (11,13) a pair of roots, the next pair would be...
