x^2 + y^2 = 2(x+y) + xy

what are all the possible solutions (x,y) if x and y are both integers?

This may be a little difficult to solve algebraically  [ although there may be a way to do so ]

 

Look at the graph here :  https://www.desmos.com/calculator/oznsn0uwpe

 

Because of the presence of the xy term,  we have a rotated conic (ellipse??)  

 

We are looking for all the lattice points  (points with integer coordinates ) that this graph passes through

 

They are the  same ones I enumerated in my previous answer.......
