    (In reply to re: solution (More confusing!) by Gamer)

    I start being lost when you say
    a+b+c=y^2, a+10b+c=x^2
    and that these lead to
    9b = y^2-x^2.
    Perhaps a typo in the interchange of x and y in one or the other of the lines, but not knowing which discourages me from reading further.
