Find all integer solutions of the system:

a b + c d = 6 && a c - 3b d = 5.

(a+d)(b+c) = 6+5+4bd

thats the solution?

A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm.

No. You haveto find all fours (a0,b0,c0,d0) elem Z:

a0 b0 + c0 d0 = 6 && a0 c0 - 3 b0 d0 = 5

(a+d)(b+c) = 6+5+4bd

contains all the information of a b + c d = 6 and a c - 3b d = 5. and it might be a path. i'm new in this field, and what i could do is shifting, to see if it has been made simplier....

You are not so right:

{a b + c d = 6 && a c - 3b d = 5} => {(a+d)(b+c) = 11+4bd}, but:

{a b + c d = 6 && a c - 3b d = 5} !<=> {(a+d)(b+c) = 11+4bd}, so not all solutions of your equation will be solutions to the system.

yes, you'r right. sufficient but not necessary. at least one of the original equation have to be contained.

from a c - 3b d = 5, ac-5 contain 3 , ac elem {8,11,14...}

a c elem {...8,11,14,...}:: a IS integer
