Abstract
In this note, we study another equation which visually resembles the Pythagorean equation and which too is required to be solved over the positive integers: where m, n, k are positive integers and a, b, c are ‘squarefree’ positive integers, i.e., they are not divisible by any square number greater than 1. (So a, b, c are products of distinct prime numbers.) Any positive integer can be uniquely written in this form, i.e., as a product of a perfect square and a squarefree positive integer.
