    Suppose you have four numbers (call them a,b,c,d). They have the following characteristics: a is a perfect cube b is a perfect square c is divisible by 10 d is ONLY divisible by 5 They are also related in the following ways: \[c-a=4+b\] \[d/c = (a-(d-51)/a-(c-69))\] \[bc-ad = 2165\] \[-5(d-3a) = 80\] What is a, b, c, and d?

    Oh, and just so it doesn't cause any confusion, the second equation can also be written as: \[d/c = (a-(d-51)\div(a-(c-69))\]

    oh wait never mind what i said about d. from c-a=4+b, i got c=4+b+a and i cross multiplied the second equation. and substituted c for 4+b+a that's what i have until now
