We have more variables than equations....therefore.....there will be infinite answers for this

The positive integers that satisfy this are :

p = 34, q = 8, r = 31, s = 8

Thanks! But I'm kind of confused. . . what do you mean since there's more variables than equations there will be infinite soultions?

Please don't take this the wrong way, I don't doubt that it's correct, I'm just wondering why :)

Have a ~~chill~~ good day! (darn I did it again. . . )

This is a homework problem in an online course so I don't want to add anything too useful. However, I'm a big fan of CPhill. You have an extensive understanding of math, so I trust you know Diophantine Equations. There may be infinite answers in R, but not in Z+. Happy solving!
