Title: The Size of Sets with the Property D(n).

Abstract: Let $n$ be a nonzero integer, and suppose $A$ is a set of distinct positive integers for which $ab+n$ is a perfect square for each pair of distinct $a$ and $b$ in $A$. Using a discussion of Andrej Dujella, we will find an upper bound on the size of such a set.
