Re: Find XYZ

I wanted the proof that no other solution exists. Otherwise, It's trivial to assume the solution . Actually,I think there are infinitely many solutions possible for this equation(!) :? Clearly, $$x^2+y^2+z^2=xyz$$ modulo $3$ shows that they are all multiples of $3$.Now, we can write $$x=3x'$$,$$y=3...

The answer is 17. If a crocodile cannot part the others into 7 then everyday there are 4 new crocodiles added on. So, firstly, we have to find the minimum of n when 4n divisible by 7. Here n = 7. So, on the 7th day a crocodile will be able to part the others into 7. Thus, on the 8th day there will b...
