```							1/x=1/2007-1/y 1/x =(y-2007)/2007yx=2007y/(y-2007)for y=2008, x= 2007*2008, is one integral solution.sher mohammadb.tech, iit delhi

```							Since x,y>2007 we have x = 2007+a, y = 2007+b for some naturals a,b

So, 1/(2007+a)+1/(2007+b) = 1/2007. Cross multiplying etc. we get,
ab = 2007^2 = 3^4 X 223^2

For any ordered pair of naturals a,b satisfying ab = 2007^2, we have the corresponding pair (x,y) = (2007+a, 2007+b) as a solution.

e.g. a=b=2007 gives x=y=4014

or a=1, b = 2007^2 gives x=2008,y=2007*2008

All in all we get 29 ordered pairs as solutions.
