- Prove that no solution exists for p< q; so p> = q.
- Substitute s = ((p^2)*q + p + q) / (p*(q^2) + q + 23)
- This would give a simple parametric solution for x and y in terms of s in a particular situation. In all other available situations q must be less than or equal to 4.(Why?)
- It is now relatively easy to determine all possible solutions to the problem.
