### Generalized Pell's equation

We know that Let $d$ be a positive square free integer and $r$ an integer satify $r^2+|r|\le d$. Suppose $x$ and $y$ are positive integers that satify $x^2-dy^2=r$. Then $\frac xy$ is a convergent to ...

### To find all integral solutions of $3x^2 - 4y^2 = 11$

I have to find all integral solutions of $3x^2 - 4y^2 = 11$. I looked at the equation $\text{mod}\ 3$, and $\text{mod}\ 4$ to see that $x^2 \equiv 1\ \text{mod}\ 4$ and $y^2 \equiv 1\ \text{mod}\ 3$ ...

### Finding integers of the form $3x^2 + xy - 5y^2$ where $x$ and $y$ are integers, using diagram via arithmetic progression

So the diagram drawn looks like this: We begin at the edges labeled $3$ and $-5$ because we are using those as the bases for $x$ and $y$, respectively. The way we obtain the values of the 2 adjacent ...
