A mathematician works for t hours per day and solves p problems per hour, where  and  are positive integers. One day, the mathematician drinks some coffee and discovers that he can now solve p + 8 problems per hour. In fact, he only works for t - 2 hours that day, but he still solves twice as many problems as he would in a normal day. How many problems does he solve the day he drinks coffee?
