You are after the largest solution to this which is also an integer?
If so solve
No, I need all the possible values of x ( for which the eqn holds true)
Greatest_Integer here means the "Greatest Integer Function" ( i dont know how to express it in its form in the forum)

Now use the null factor law.

Now, investigate values of x very nearby these two solutions to see if they will work.
