# integer solutions of (n!+1)=m^2

Consider $4!=24$, if you add one you get $25=5^2$. The same occurs with $5! = 120 = 11^2 - 1$, and $7! = 5040 = 71^2 - 1$. Are there other solutions of the equation $n!+1 = m^2$?

I verified that no other solution exists with $m<10^9$. Does the problem has already been studied? Is there a demonstration that no other solution exists?

Greetings.

It's probably discussed in Guy, Unsolved Problems In Number Theory (I don't have the book at hand, so cannot check). –  Gerry Myerson Nov 6 '10 at 21:43
