k=3^4 . 11 . 757 . 93077^2

p=93077

According to ATH p=93077 is the only known example where p|k. However I also observed that p^2 | k. Is that just a monstrous coincidence? Or is it necessary?

Yes, in this example k is divisible by p^2, which is to say k=0 (mod p^2).

I am asking if it is known that if k=0 (mod p) then k=0 (mod p^2) (for k<>0).

I see that for this factor 11686604129694847 we have k divisible not just by p but by p^2 . Could this be a requirement if k=0 (mod p) ?

@storm5510 I think what you write sums it up exactly. At least that's my understanding too. I compare it in my mind with the "kilowatt hour" as a measure of consumption of electricity.

I think the word "by" is included there to mean "by your uncle". But I agree it isn't the most beautiful of sentence constructions. :smile:
