## Content Summary

This starts with a proof of what Euler calls Waring's theorem, now known as Wilson's theorem, that (*n*-1)! is congruent to 1 modulo *n* if *n* is prime. The next problem is to find four numbers whose pairwise products, increased by 1, give squares. He also cites a problem posed by Leibniz: find two numbers, *p* and *q*, so that their sum is a square and the sum of their squares is a fourth power.
