BonusQuestion: Great use of Pell’s equation! You totally did me a service here—I wasn’t expecting anyone on fluther to be able to answer that question for me, and not only did you answer it, but you obviously put some time in, and came up with a simple, elegant solution. Also, you happen to have answered another issue for me (I was dealing with the d=0 case in another context also). Thanks a lot for your thoughtful work on my problem.

Regarding your answer:
I really appreciate the time that you put into the analysis of the problem. The realization that the problem was equivalent to x^1/x = y^1/y is something that I missed.

Regarding your answer:

Thanks for the proof. I will have to go over it when I come home from work.
