Getting the Numbers With Product And Quotient (Posted on 2007-09-17) Difficulty: 3 of 5
(A) Analytically determine all possible two digit positive decimal integers n, that satisfy this equation:

       n = p + 4c

where p is the product of the digits of n, while c is the result when the unitís digit is divided by the tens digit.

(B) For what positive integer bases N< 10 do valid solutions to the above equation exist?

(In reply to non-analytic (spoiler) by Charlie)


quick thinkers are often wrong

Analytical solution bois down to



bm+n= mn+4m/n b us the base

substitute t=n/m and solve four times for t= 1,2,3,4

you will get al the couples m.n for b<10
