Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So 105/(x8) must be integer......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0105 = 5*7*3*1. So, 8 integral solutions? Am I doing it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05*7. 2 more. 5*3. 2 more. 7*3. 2 more. and 105 itself. 2 more integral solutions. I mean x8 could be \(\pm5,7,3,1,5*7,5*3,105,7*3\), Right?
