# Are there infinitely many sets of triples $\{ x,x+1,x+2\}$ that are square free?

I suppose there are a series of such questions, depending on the length of the set, staring with pairs, and the power that is supposed to be missing from the divisors.

Here is a problem insisting on the opposite; that the numbers should all have a certain power as divisor.

Thanks, oddly enough my few searches did not locate that page. Is there an elementary answer for pairs of consecutive numbers? –  Maesumi Mar 3 '13 at 21:07
