Assuming a, b, c and d are known, what is the best method to resolve the remaining variables: x, y, such that the resulting number is a specific integer.

Where does this come from? It's far too complicated for it to be at all likely that you made it up on the spur of the moment so it likely arises in the course of some other algebraic manipulations. Knowing its origin could well make a solution easier to find.
BTW, it's not an equation (I don't see a '=' anywhere within it) but a formula. Someone has to do RDS's job for him these days ...
