Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás: Az \left(x-x_1\right)\left(x-x_2\right)\left(x-x_3\right)=0 gyöktényezős alakból kapjuk, hogy x1+x2+x3=8.

Az egyenlet megoldás számhármasai: (1,1,6); (1,2,5); (1,3,4); (2,2,4); (2,3,3).

Vagyis a megoldások: (13,-6); (17,-10); (19,-12); (20,-16); (21,-18).
