V 76%! Wiles MATH 135, Fall 2010 Solution of Assignment #1 Problem 1. Find all ordered pairs of integers (ac, y) such that x2 + 23: + 18 = 3/2. SOLUTION. Note that 17=(y+x+1)(y*9341) Since y + ac + 1 and y — a; — 1 are integers, there are only the following possibilities
y+m+1:i17,ymm—1:i1,ory+m+1=i1,y—m—1=i17.®
The solutions are
y=9,x=7, ory=—9,a:=—9, ory=9,ac:—9, ory=—9,m=7. I @
Problem 2. Find all real numbers a: such that 113—13 “2\/E«1

Let ﬂ = y. The equation becomes y2—5y—~36=O => (y—9)(y+4):0 => 21:91—4 =>3$—39=2$+5\/a?—3=>$—5\/_—36=0. M > Since x is a real number, y : ﬂ must be positive. Thus, y : 9 and a: = 81. I (D
