Since the line is perpendicular to another line with slope 13, its slope will be 13's opposite reciprocal, or - 1 13 . So the line we are trying to find has the equation y = - 1 13 x + b . Since it passes through (7,8), it holds that 8 = - 7 13 + b b = 111 .
So the final equation is y = - 1 13 x + 111

Given a set of linear Diophantine Equations (LDE's), where each equation is one of the following form:
Let C be a positive integer constant. Also, the number of variables in each equation is exactly C.
1. a i + b i + c i . . . . . = C or
2. a i + b i + c i . . . . . = ( C + 1 )
For every such set of LDE problem instance, the problem is solvable iff, at least one such solution exists, such that each variable's assigned value in that solution is:
1. C
2. 0
In other words, the solution if it exists is bounded by the constant C and 0.
Can someone help with the proof of the above statement (or counterexamples with some small C)?
