    i still havent answered that one problem i asked a while back. I was able to prove that if A is an invertible matrix with integer entries, and its inverse also has invertible entries, then the det A must be 1 or -1 (as per Alchemista's suggestion, thank you again). But i dont see how to use that fact to solve the problem.

    There are many ways you can find the roots (factoring is one of them). You can complete the square or use the quadratic formula.
