That left me with 4 quadratic equations but none of them gave rational solutions. Obviously, I've made a mistake but I wasn't able to find it.<br /><br />Regards, PaulPaul P.

One has to solve a quadratic equation with rather large numbers and there are a number of possibilities therefore a number of quadratic equations (at least 8, more like 16). I gave up after trying the 2 most obvious contenders.<br /><br />Regards, Paul.Paul P. Mealinghttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14573615711151742992noreply@blogger.com
