Authors: Miika Rankaviita

This thesis explains the solution to the problem of finding all of the integer pair solutions to the equation x!+x=x^n. A detailed explanation is given so that anyone with high school mathematics background can follow the solution. This paper is a translation of my diplom work in Vaasa Lyseo Upper Secondary School.
