# Another Reworded APMO Problem!

How many ordered pairs of non-negative integers $$(a,b)$$ subject to $$a,b <1000$$ are there such that both $$a^2+4b$$ and $$b^2+4a$$ are perfect squares?

This problem is a reworded version of a problem that appeared in APMO-1999.

This problem is a part of the set "Olympiads and Contests Around the World - 2". You can see rest of the problems here.
