**Does every Pell equation have a solution?**

(4) Pell’s equation always has nontrivial solutions. The fundamental solution is x y = { [ a 0 , a 1 , … , a k − 1 ] if k is even [ a 0 , a 1 , … , a 2 k − 1 ] if k is odd .

**How do you find the generalized Pell equation?**

x1 − y1 √ d = (x2 − y2 √ d)(x − y √ d). We saw in the previous section that Pell’s equation has a nontrivial solution. Using a nontrivial solution of Pell’s equation we will describe a method to write down all the solutions of a generalized Pell equation x2 − dy2 = n, where n is a nonzero integer.
