Question re: A second all-positive solution (spoilers) | Comment 5 of 13 |
(In reply to A second all-positive solution (spoilers) by Charlie)

How about trying advancing a,b,c by step=50 and looking for justification later?



BTW , my  "pifometer" guess  is a+b+c=30000 might be your next solution, just find the a,b,c triplet
