This is very straight forward. Nice.

Shame on the teacher who wrote this so-called teaser. It is a nice straight-forward algebra question and a good math exercise, but it isn't much of a tease.

At the very least, he should obey the "show your work" rule and provide the explantion as well as the result.

I misread the negative sign so I got the positive integers. fun though!

Yeah, I kind of missed the "teaser" part of this one.
