      I have a question, maybe someone could answer.

      Given a number and a base expansion in base x,

      N=a x^2 + b x + c ,

      with c known, is there a (convenient) algorithm to
      determine x? or a or b?

      An algorithm would be appreciated, especially if
      the complexity is low.
