How many polynomials P(x) of the form ax^2+bx+c defining the same field as x^2+x+1 is it the case that a+b+c = 19 where a, b, c are integers -19 <= (a, b, c) <= 19? Thanks for help, comments, and clarification.
well the number of polynomials total before the field consideration is 6*partitions(19,,[3,3]) ( as there are 6 orders possible for {a,b,c} ) or 180 ( okay I see now, you include negatives which throw the numbers off a bit but I was only trying to give a maximum).

-d,d,19 20*6 polynomials with ordering changes like this ( edited to include +0 and -0)
d,-(d-1),18 where d is positive, ....


edit2: turns out there are 400 possibilities to look through ( as some have only one order that is unique better than searching all 59319 {a,b,c} in that range by hand though.

edit 2 + :
