(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find a positive integer solution to 1234x-4321y=1, both x and y will be positive.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I created this array

4321 1234 619 615 4 3 1

3 1 1 153 1

1082 309 155 154 1 1 0

When plugging these (positive) values in I never get 1 I only get -1 when using x=1082 and y=309. Does this mean that no positive solution exists?

Thanks
