Hey geniusgarvil.

You are going to have infinitely many solutions for this: Does x and y have to be whole numbers? - Feb 14th 2013, 06:31 PMgeniusgarvilRe: number of solutions
Yes , x and y are positive integers

Hint: Try factorizing the number first and then look for solutions by prime decomposition.
