FindInstance question:

Hi All,

I have evaluated the following equality with FindInstance function and
there appears to be no results.

Please could someone review the following equality to see if my result is
TRUE or Is it possible to find one or more Integer results to this equality.


radiusV1 = 145.98630072715727;


radiusV2 = 95.62128455180272;


slopeV1Deg = 9.462322208025617;


slopeV2Deg = 18.43494882292201;



FindInstance[(360*radiusV1)/(slopeV1Deg + 360*timeV1x) ==

(360*radiusV2)/(slopeV2Deg + 360*timeV2x) &&

(360*(radiusV1*2))/(slopeV1Deg*2 + 360*(timeV1x*2)) ==

(360*(radiusV2*2))/(slopeV2Deg*2 + 360*(timeV2x*2)) &&

timeV1x > 0 && timeV2x > 0, {timeV1x, timeV2x},

Integers, 2]


Any help or advice gratefully received.

Best regards,
