The difference between the squares of two different primes is $1488$. Given both primes are less than $50$, find the primes.

Note: Submit the numbers in either order separated by a comma.

The primes less than 50 are:  2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47

 

We can find the answer using trial and error..

 

432 - 192  =  1488

 

(First I tried  472 - 22  then  472 - 32  etc.  until 472 - 292

Then I tried  432 - 232  and then  432 - 192 which worked)
