Abstract

Let m be the greatest common factor of the two positive integers m1 and m2. In this paper we show that if m has a "specific form," then the nontrivial solutions of the equation of the title are m times the "primitive solutions" of a similar equation with smaller m1 and m2. Also it is shown that the equation of the title with m1=1 and m2=3 has only four pairs of nontrivial solutions in integers given by X=14 or *18, and Y=17 or *21. Then we shall find all solutions in integers of the equation of the title if m2=3m1 and m1 is of a specific form.
