We have the equation: (E):5x-6y=3 1-Solve in Z^2 the equation (I already did, the solution is (x,y)=(6k+3 , 5k+2) (k∈Z)) 2- a and b are natural numbers: a=1α0α00 in the 3-base system. b=αβ0α in the 5-base system. -Find α and β , knowing that (a,b) is a solution to (E) Help please with the last question.

Actually it's just 2, but I'm looking for a mathematical way to solve, thanks anyway.

I'll give you the (very) simple run-down. $\displaystyle \mathbb{Z} ^2$ is the set of all ordered pairs (a, b) where a and b are both integers.
