    A question to do with soccer, maybe

    Q: During a certain soccer tournament, a guy sells the jerseys of some teams. The selling price of the jersey are:

    Brazil:$170, England:$104, Argentina:$130, Italy:$78

    If the total revenue is $3600, how many jerseys of Brazil has sold?

    =====

    Have no idea where to start with.
    I would really like to take on the question myself, please do give hints instead of the answer, if possible.
    Thanks.

    You require the solution to 170u + 104v + 130w + 78x = 3600 where u, v, w and x are positive whole numbers. The value of u is the answer.

    It is not likely to compute a real value?
