How I solve this problem by python? Please help and give me a idea to solve this.
It is a question from the book 104 number theory problems.
If x,y,z are natural numbers where x and z are odd numbers and y is a multiple of 8, then how many solutions does the equation given below have?
You can solve this mentally.
Let’s say it’s
x+z=k//assuming k is even
We have solutions from
So the number of solutions is k/2.
Now if y is 8 , we get 2014 - 8 /2 = 1003
if y is 16, we get 2014 - 16 /2 = 999
This goes on until we reach 3
so we get 3+ 7 + 11 … 1003
That sum is 126253.
Thanks a lot . I understand your answer and now I can also do it with python easily.
for y in range(8,2014,8):
for x in range(1,p,2):
print('total number of solutions : ',c)
What is answer given in the book?
