Solution to ((2^n)+1)/(n^2)

  1. Apr 3, 2014 #1
    Find all positive integer answers for ((2^n)+1)/(n^2) where n is an integer greater then one.
    The only answer i can find is three, i wrote a program to brute force it and have gotten up to n=32000 but as for going about solving it i have no clue.
