1. HOW MANY NUMBERS BELOW 100 CAN BE WRITTEN AS A DIFFERENCE OF TWO PERFECT SQUARES IN ONLY ONE WAY?

ANSWERLet c=a2 - b2 = (a+b)*(a-b). a+b and a-b both are either even or odd simultaneously. 1) Odd prime number = 1*itself : 25-1 = 24 2) 4*prime number = 2*(2*prime number) including 2 = 9 3) Square of odd prime number = 1*square of odd prime number = 3 4) 4*square of prime number = 2*(2*square of prime number) = 2 Answer: 38 (I think the answer given is 36, but they missed the last case) PS: 0 is not considered as a perfect square.
