Fero and David meet daily in the elevator. One morning they found that if they multiply their current age, they get 238. If they did the same after four years, this product would be 378. Determine the sum of the current ages of Fero and David.

Correct result:

s =  31

#### Solution:

$a \cdot \ (s-a)=238 \ \\ (a+4) \cdot \ (s-a+4)=378 \ \\ \ \\ as-a^2=238 \ \\ as-a^2+4a +4s-4a+16=378 \ \\ \ \\ as-a^2=238 \ \\ as-a^2+4s+16=378 \ \\ \ \\ \ \\ 238 + 4s + 16=378 \ \\ \ \\ 238 + 4 \cdot \ s + 16=378 \ \\ \ \\ 4s=124 \ \\ \ \\ s=31$

The equations have the following integer solutions:
a*(s-a)=238
(a+4)*(s-a+4) = 378

Number of solutions found: 2
