We have the equation: (E):5x6y=3 1Solve 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 3base system. b=αβ0α in the 5base system. Find α and β , knowing that (a,b) is a solution to (E) Help please with the last question.

Trial and error. There are only three possibilities for the value of α, of which only α = 2 leads to a solution.
