  • math - ,

    you want whole number solutions, ordered pairs, for the equation

    37L + 21P = 311

    This is an example of a Diophantine's equation.
    Somehow I don't think you are studying that topic
    by just doing simple trial and error, I got
    L = 5, and P=6

    check: 5x37 + 6x21 = 311
