brute-force method written in javascript; copy paste this code to jsbin.com then run the first on the list satisfy is a=-9,b=-3,c=-4,d=0 bounded -10 to 10 solutions are so many as boundary increases var m=-10, n=10, list=[]; for(a=m;a<=n;a++){ for(b=m;b<=n;b++){ for(c=m;c<=n;c++){ for(d=m;d<=n;d++){ if(aa+bbb+cccc+ddddd==310){ list[list.length]=[a,b,c,d]; } } } } } alert(list) Mharfe Micaroz · 4 years, 3 months ago
