\[x=\frac{ 97yz-97z-97 }{ 19yz }=\frac{ 97 }{ 19 }-\frac{ 97 }{ 19 yz }\left( y+1 \right)\] so \[x<\frac{ 97 }{ 19 }\] but x is a positive integer. so x can be 1,2,3,4,5

correction \[\frac{ 97 }{ 19 yz }\left( z+1 \right)\]

\[x=\frac{97yz-97z-97}{19yz} \implies 19xyz = 97(yz-z-1) \\~\\~\\ \implies z =\dfrac{97}{97y-19xy-97}\] Since \(z\gt 0\) and \(z\gt y\gt x\), it must be the case that \[97y-19xy-97 = 1\] isolating \(y\) : \[y = \dfrac {98}{97-19x}\] so \(97-19x \in \{\text{positive factors of 98}\}\)

yz-z-1>0 yz>z+1 yz>z yz-z>0 (y-1)z>0 y>1 so \[y \ge2,z>y \ge2,z \ge3\]

I'm confused... how do I connect all of these equations

Well, consider what ganeshie had. He had it worked down to y = 98/(97-19x), which means 97-19x had to be equal to a factor of 98. Factors of 98 are 2, 7, and 49. The only factor of 98 that makes the value of x equal to a positive integer is 2. 97-19x = 2 -19x = -95 x = 5 The other possible factors of 98 would fail. So since we can confirm x is 5, we would also get y to be 98/2 = 49 And from before \[z = \frac{ 97 }{ 97y -19xy -1 }\] We confirmed that 97y -19xy -1 had to be equal to 1, which means z is 97.

Should I put 97 into the equation now?

if we try one by one no value of satisfy this . Hence no positive integers are possible with the given condition. Let us take the case x=3 57 yz=97 yz-97z-97 \[40yz-97 z=97\] \[z=\frac{ 97 }{ 40 y-97 }\] no integral value of y gives positive integral value of z

the problem says there is an integral value of y that gives positive integral value of z
anonymous
  • anonymous
in the statement it is also written x,y,z are positive integers

  • h0pe
If no integral value of y gives positive integral value of z then what o.o
