Number theory question continued
Posted: Mar 25, 2006 3:55 AM

Hello everybody,
I post it again to rapair one mistake
Could you give a clue how I can start the following problem or
propose a solution.

"Is it true that for every sufficiently large interval there will be a
integer in it of the form
2^n-3^m where m,n are integers?"

As far as I understand it we are supposed either to prove that there
exists number H : every interval with length H contains such a number
or disprove it.

Regards,
