Ambiguous And Definite Years (Posted on 2006-02-27) Difficulty: 2 of 5
A given year p (expressed in YYYY format) is defined as "Ambiguous" if there exists at least one positive integral solution of the equation x^2 + x + y^2 + 3y = p. Otherwise, the said year (p) is a "Definite" year.

For example, 1890 A.D. was an "Ambiguous" year, since (x,y)=(34,25) corresponds to a positive integral solution of x^2 + x + y^2 + 3y = 1890.

Determine, whether 2006 A.D. is an Ambiguous Year or a Definite Year.
