 Jun5 comment Trying to prove an identity about a product I will go down that route, thanks for your suggestions @wece Jun5 comment Trying to prove an identity about a product @wece I thought that I should induct on $p$ and then perhaps have a "nested" induction on $n$ inside the proof. How can I induct on $n$ but still establish that it is only those above tuples that give me the desired dimension?

May23 comment How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime. @MarkBennet it appears after looking at your answer and the original problem more closely that there are no such $(a,b) \in \Bbb N$ that satisfy this for $p$ a prime. Do you know how I might find the integral points on the surface $F(a,b,n) = 0 = d(a,b) - n$ for $n \in \Bbb N$? May23 comment How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime. @AmireBendjeddou $a, b \in \Bbb N$, sorry I should have mentioned these constraints. @ Mark Bennet: I'm sorry I think I may have misunderstood you. So your comment is that there are no pairs of the form $(1, b)$ satisfying the above equality? May23 asked How to find instances when $d(a,b) = p^2$ for $p$ a prime.
