    Pigeon-Hole Principle

    This is a problem from the first chapter of Miklos Bona's 'A Walk Through Combinatorics': The Pigeon-Hole Principle.

    "Find all triples of positive integers a < b < c for which 1/a + 1/b + 1/c = 1 holds."

    Any hints showing how this problem can be solved using PHP?

    Just peeked at the solution; the problem doesn't require PHP after all! Sorry about that.
