Hi, I'm struggling a bit with the following problem: 3 + 14*x = 1 + 25*y = 9 + 288*z I have a series of these equations which I need to solve, with different first terms in each case and one of these first terms changes for each equation: e.g. the second such equation is: 3 + 14*x = 1 + 25*y = 47 + 288*z Obviously, I'd prefer not to brute force this problem, or I wouldn't be posting here. But I just thought there might be an analytical solution, because as I progress further with this, the x, y and z coefficients will get larger. Also, if you could advise as to a general solution for any number of terms, I'd welcome it. Muchos gracias amigos.
