Express one variable in terms of the other (see which makes most sense). What are the conditions for having integer solutions?

That is the same as saying that [itex]3^x= 1[/itex] (mod 4). Check out "Fermat's Little Theorem".

Ok, but how can I show that this eqation can be saying like that you wrote? If I place for 3^x=1(mod 4) to top equation and from Fermat's little theorem I have x=3 than I have equation with one variable? That you thought about?
