Sorta Platonic... (Posted on 2022-06-09) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Consider this Diophantine equation:
3a + 4b + 5c = 6d, where each of a, b, c, and d is a positive integer.

The famous ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Plato was aware that a=b=c=d=3 is a solution.

Does there exist any further solution?
