**Reiny**, Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 5:56pmyou 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
