comment What are the properties of a prime number?
I am sure there are many other properties and I guess they are too many to list.

Thank you.That's what I meant.

Since, the moderators haven't objected to this link, I am accepting the solution.Thanks.

comment Using recurrences to solve $3a^2=2b^2+1$
Thank you very much for the links.I should be able to "take over" from here.Thanks again for searching that for me.(I should have probably done that myself instead of troubling people here)

So, it turns out I don't even know how to solve the Pell's equation.!

And I did not mean you or anyone, I was only referring to the lack of responses,it being possibly not suited to the members' taste here(My solution involved a bit of calculation.Who wants such stupid solutions?:))I have seen a lot of really tough problems having been solved easily by people here on math.se.And I did not refer to kalva's page nor did I reject puresky's answer outrightly.I merely downvoted it to protest the copyrighted material.And since you say so, I will not ask any questions related to contests henceforth.And you may keep the downvote if you feel like.

I don't think the comments section allows me to type it out.(Mine was going along the lines specified in Puresky's link except that I deviated from it and found a similar solution which I hate to talk about)But, neither should I answer my own question.I asked my question to see if there exists a slicker, better solution.

Yes, you summed it up well.It is ugly if you take conventional route(why else is there no proper answer after 14 hours with a solitary link to a copyrighted material)..And secondly, I asked this question because I felt it was ugly.I don't always ask questions to know the answer.I ask them to gain better insight.
