Dear friends and visitors of the site,

thank you for your replies to the May Problem.

The first to send a correct solution was Emmanuelle.

Congrats to her!

Here is my solution:

n3 -7=( n3 -1)- 6.

So (n-1) is a factor of 6 and is equal to 1,2,3,6.

Thus n can be equal to 2,3,4,7


Thank you again and let's try the June Problem.
