    then a^2-3a+(-19-289k)=0 Do you know that Ax^2+Bx+C=0? I use this B^2 -4AC A=1, B=-3, C=(-19-289k) So its be (-3)^2-4.(1).((-19-289k)

    9+76+1156k 85+1156k then I use 17(5+68k)

    5+68k must be have 17 factor for some perfect square, 5+68k=17n 5=17n-68k 5/17=(n-4k) Found that its not integer, because there are 5/17.. even right side is integer. CMIWW @goformit100
