Can someone please tell me how to go about answering a question like this? I've been racking my brain for a long time and still don't have a clue...I guess because my background in algebra/number theory really isn't that strong.
"What is the greatest integer that divides [itex]p^4 - 1[/itex] for every prime number [itex]p[/itex] greater than 5?"
Thanks!
