Re: A nice question

hi iamaditya

If there are no restrictions on a, b, and c then there are an infinite numbers of solutions.  Re-write the equation with a as the subject and then choose any b and any c to generate a value for a.

So I'm assuming you want positive integer values.

Good puzzle, thanks.
