I'd like to ask my preferred book UPINT, but I am not sure
where I could find an answer (or at least related questions).
The actual problem, posed by Peter Luschny, was: what can
be said about the remainders of floor(2^m/3^k) modulo 6?
His problem restated:
================= Conjecture ===================
For all m > 26 there exists some k > 0 such that
floor(2^m / 3^k) = 3 (mod 6).
================================================
Could someone please be so kind as to give me a pointer
to UPINT (Unsolved Problems in Number Theory)? I have
the third edition available at home.
Best regards,
Rainer
