Solution Solutions per Integer | Comment 4 of 13 |
For any integer x, the equation floor(m/6)=x has 6 integer solutions 6x+k where k=0 to 5.  Similarly floor(n/13)=x has 13 integer solutions 13x+j where j=0 to 12.

Then the compound equation floor(m/6)=floor(n/13)=x has 6*13 = 78 solutions for every integer x.
