Hello all:

Find all solutions of this equation:

Sqrt[p(x)*p(x+y)-1]= y

p(x)=x-th prime;  Sqrt=Square Root

I have found tree solutions:

x=1 y=5   Sqrt[p(1)*p(1+5)-1]=Sqrt[2*13-1]=Sqrt[25]=5

x=3 y=22

x=10  y=186

Sincerely:
Sebastian Martin Ruiz

Interesting question. I suspect that there are only finitely many more
solutions, perhaps no more, but don't have a clue how to start to prove
this.
