Title: Perfect Square
Topic: Find a rational perfect square (e.g.,
225/16 - the square of 15/4) which remains a rational perfect square when
increased or decreased by 6.
Sixth and seventh grade
We were presented with the Topic problem. No solution seemed possible when
we initially considered only integers. We then decided to expand from
integers to rational numbers.
